HOPE, Ark. - Gary Johnson and his mother, Elaine, have lived in the "little bitty house" at 321 E. 13th St. for about 10 years.


Now married, Johnson is looking for a bigger house.


But selling the neatly-maintained corner lot residence where Bill Clinton (news - web sites) lived for three years as a child is taking some time.


"The house was for sale 10 years ago for a long time because nobody wanted it," Johnson said. "As I recall, there was a man from Canada who was finally interested. And my mother and I just thought that was terrible if someone from another country took the little house.


"Now it's long past his presidential days, and I just don't see anybody local being interested in it."


Johnson decided to go worldwide and auction off the home on eBay.


He won't say how many inquiries he has had since posting the home on the Internet site a week ago, but said he has had some serious inquiries. Johnson has left it up to his father to screen prospective buyers.


"He called yesterday morning before we went to church all excited that there were 14 bids that had come in overnight," Johnson said.


The former president was born in Hope on Aug. 19, 1946, and his birthplace home has been turned into a museum. Clinton lived at the 13th Street residence from 1951-1953 before moving to Hot Springs.


Johnson believes he's helped preserve the integrity of the home.


"It has had a lot of cosmetic surgery done on it because of President Clinton (news - web sites) living there," he said. "If it hadn't been for that, it would probably be a run-down, late-40s little rent house."


Johnson said the original floor plan remains intact despite the addition of siding, carpeting and new ceilings. The house is about 950-square feet. It has three bedrooms, a dining room, kitchen, living room and one bath room.


The house basically is the same as it was when Clinton lived there.


But Johnson said the historical connection of the house has been largely overlooked.


"In all the years we have lived there, I have never had anyone come to me and say in a serious sense 'We need to make this a tourist site,'" Johnson said.

I’ll bet he could make more money turning that into a brothel. Then rig a bomb underneath to destroy all the "liberals". Who else would go into a Clinton Brothel?

Lehpron - that was the most IQ point dropping, crappy, disgusting post I've ever heard from you. If I were Kroc - you'd be quadruple shafted right now.


I'd like to elect a president that has a Higher IQ than a retarted ant.

You truly can't take a joke can you? Being on the otherside of an offensive joke -- I don't care.  Laugh out loud

Ever been through Hope, Arkansas? If you had you would know why nobody wants it. it is this little wide spot where a horse crapped on the road about 20 minutes North of Texarkana. The sign that says "Childhood home of Bill Clinton" has so many bullet holes in it you can see the sun shine through it. The town is anything but pleasant if you get off the highway, it is run down, it smells, there is no industry to speak of. I believe it is even in a dry county.

Not even Alpha1 would buy the place.

Chuckle.  Smile

Whoever buys the house should paint it light blue...the same colour as that other large famous dwelling in Clinton's past....Monica Lewinski's dress.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

dude if you paint it light blue people will drive right into it as it looks like the sky. Maybe they should paint "clouds" on the house to represent the evidence on Monica Lewinski's dress.  Smile

Seriously though, 950 sq.ft. 3 bedroom has got to be small and it ain't worth living in. My mom is in a 1000 sqft 2 bedroom townhome, that's sweet enough, but for a thousand a month, that sucks.

What's the price of land out there?
