HOPE – The Hempstead County Historical Society will be holding a meeting on Tuesday evening February 27, at the President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace National Historic Site in Hope, at 7pm.

Everyone is welcome. Staff of the national park will provide the program and tour of the only national park in Hempstead County. The building was the first home of U.S. President Bill Clinton and was the home of his grandparents. President Clinton lived in this house for the first four years of his life with his mother and maternal grandparents. He continued to visit his grandparents here until his grandfather’s death in 1957. The museum is located in downtown Hope at 117 South Hervey Street.

The Historical Society seeks to bring awareness to the rich heritage and history of Hempstead County. Come and share your history with us.
