OUR WELL ROUNDED SQUARE

Welcome to Clinton's Historic Downtown Square, which is Missouri's largest and most charming. The Victorian setting makes you feel like you took a step back to the 1800s. Browse through our shops, where you will find unique jewelry, high fashion clothing and an array of gifts. We have a first-class historical museum. And in the middle of it all is the Henry County Courthouse, which dates to 1893. As you soak in the small-town atmosphere, don't miss the Memorial Bandstand, the Soldiers Memorial and the granite Historic Fountain that was donated to Clinton in 1911 by the Human Alliance Foundation.
