Our Mission
To collect, preserve, document, research, and interpret the Clinton community’s past for today and future generations, and to make it’s rich heritage readily available to the membership and general public through programs, exhibits, and publications.

The Clinton Historical Society began in 1962 and was located over the Kirkland Town Library in rented quarters. Meetings were held there, and it is where the Society’s collection was partially stored. The CHS moved to a new location in 1994. Using bequeathed and donated funds to remodel it’s new location at One Fountain Street, the Society turned the former Clinton Baptist Church into what it is today. Now, a library has been set up, artifacts are on permanent display on the lower level, storage facilities have been built
