Site Selected for Temporary Storage of Clinton Records
College Park, MD. . . The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) announced today the selection of the temporary site to house the records and other Presidential materials of the Clinton Administration. The site, which was formerly the Balch Motor Company, is located at 1000 LaHarpe Boulevard in Little Rock, Arkansas, approximately 1 ½ miles from the site of the future Clinton Presidential Library. The lease for this facility was negotiated for NARA by the Greater Southwest Region of the General Service Administration. NARA will operate this approximately 42,000 square foot temporary facility until the permanent Clinton Presidential Library is ready for occupancy.
President Clinton's Presidential materials will be moved to this facility by the conclusion of his term in office. Preliminary processing of the approximately 67,000 cubic feet of records and artifacts will begin while the Clinton Library is being built. The records, audiovisual materials and artifacts will then be transferred to the Library for permanent retention.
