NWA Celebrates Hillary Clinton’s 65th Birthday
The Clinton House Museum in Fayetteville hosted a birthday party for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 65th birthday Saturday.
The former home of the Clinton’s offered free admission, refreshments, and Hillary Clinton’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. The public stopped by and sign Hillary’s birthday card and share favorite Clinton stories.
The Clinton House Museum was officially added to the National Register on January 22, 2010. The Clinton House was the home of many people and families that were influential in local, state, and national events.
The Clintons were married in the living room of the house in October 1975. They lived in the home while Clinton reorganized from a failed political campaign for the U. S. House of Representatives and while he operated an ultimately successful campaign for Attorney General of Arkansas.
The Clinton House Museum is located at 930 West Clinton Dr. in Fayetteville, Arkansas and will be open from 8:30am-4:30pm.
