Where is Clinton?
 
 

 
Clinton History Established 1836

Today, Clinton’s Square displays its heritage with pride. Since 1989, Clinton Main Street, Inc. has been active in the preservation and revitalization of the Historic District.

The Henry County Museum and Cultural Arts Center, located off the Clinton Square, preserves many of the memories dear to residents of Henry County. Visitors can step back in time as they stroll through the late-1800’s village and tour the exhibits. The genealogy library is an invaluable community resource. 

The Delozier Building, just to the east of the Museum, was built in 1887 as the Henry County Bank. It was the first bank in Henry County and also housed the first Post Office. It now serves as the Children’s Corner Theatre, a home for the arts, and a hall for community events.

In 1986, the northwest corner of the square suffered a tragic fire in what was then a Western Auto Store. The lot stood empty for a few years but is now home to a new Rotary Building, built in 1999. The local Rotary club took great pains to insure the architecture conforms with that of the Historic Square District.

Another new building in the downtown district is Clinton City Hall which was opened in February 2006. Again, great care was taken to make sure the new building fits within the Historic District.
