Foster/Kopecky House Coming Down

By Mark Keith, 03/25/19 8:02 PM

Demolition began Monday March 25th on the Foster/Kopecky House on West 2nd in Hope. The structure was just over 100 years old and was noteworthy for being the childhood home of the late Vince Foster. The backyard was adjacent to the first home.of President Bill Clinton and the two were friends from childhood on. Plans are for the city of Hope to develop the area into a small park with a veteran’s memorial as well as parking for the President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site. The house had been unoccupied for many years and suffered from structural problems due to shifting soil. Demolition on Monday brought down part of the Eastern side of the house.
