Hope, Arkansas: Birthplace Bricks of Bill Clinton

After Julia Chester Hospital was demolished, a hopper-full of its bricks was evidently saved. They were later mortared into a pedestal, topped with a plaque, and placed on the front lawn of Bill Clinton's second boyhood home. In a sense Bill Clinton was born in the front yard of a home he wouldn't move into until he was four years old.

Birthplace Bricks of Bill Clinton

Bricks from the hospital in which President Clinton was born were collected, and with them they built this brick monument in front of Clinton's 2nd home.

[Tim Bash, 03/26/2014]

Bill Clinton's birthplace hospital (where he emerged after a Caesarian delivery) is long gone, but enough bricks were salvaged to make a pedestal in the front yard of his second boyhood home. You could spend all day in Hope looking at Clinton landmarks!
