“Such an interesting town. I’m glad I live here! The history is so deep because it’s such an old village. Older than Utica. My fiancé has lived here for a lot of years and has told me some of the history. I find it interesting that a village does so well at preserving its past.”

“I’m a Clintonian since 1970 and I have learned some things about our history on my visit to the Clinton Historical Society that I did not know. Love it!! Love the pictures and the museum. And I happily bought a book: Clinton and the Town of Kirkland.”
