Hope, Arkansas

I seem to be on the Clinton tour these days.

I arrived in Hope, Arkansas this morning to do some training with Rainbow of Challenges. Another in the list of fine agencies I have been lucky enough to become involved with. I also discovered that this was the birthplace of Bill Clinton.

I’m thinking that this guy has to be my Dad’s favourite president. Not for anything to do with policies, but because everywhere I go in Arkansas, everything to do with Clinton also involves trains!

His library is next to a gorgeous old railway bridge. The Clinton School of Public Service is in an old Railway Station. The Hope, AR visitor centre is half Clinton – half train museum and finally his first home looks out over the railway!
