Come January 2, Bill Clinton's boyhood home in Hope, Arkansas will officially open as a National Historic Site. Clinton lived in his maternal grandparent's house during the first 4 1/2 years of his life, though he spent summers there until 1957.

The two-story frame house has been operated as a museum by a non-profit foundation, but this new change showcases an expanded and improved visitor experience. The house, which was bought and restored in the 1990s by the Clinton Birthplace Foundation, will now be turned over to the National Park Service. Open to the public since 1997, it has attracted 83,000 visitors from 159 countries.
