Bill Clinton's Home Declared National Historic Site

Bill Clinton boyhood homeFormer President Bill Clinton attended an honorary ceremony in Hope, Ark. on Saturday to mark his boyhood home a national historical site. Accompanied by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and U.S. Rep. Mike Ross, the erstwhile commander-in-chief regaled the crowd with memories of growing up in rural Arkansas.

"The one thing I learned living here is that arithmetic and governance and the aspirations of ordinary people are way more important than anybody's ideology," Clinton said to the crowd of approximately 350 people, according to Arkansas Online.

The home joins more than 30 recognized presidential sites across the nation (many of which are featured here) and becomes the 394th national park. President Obama signed a bill in 2009 to grant the home the special designation.
