1862 - Clinton
CLINTON was formed from Ellenburgh, May 14, 1845. It is the north west corner town of the county. Its surface is elevated, but generally level. The highest portion along the south border is about 1,050 feet above Lake Champlain. It is nearly all underlaid by Potsdam Sandstone, which is here remarkably white. It is drained by small brooks. - More than three fourths of the town is yet a wilderness, the principal settlements being in the northeast part. The soil is a light sandy loam, capable of bearing but a thin growth of forest trees. A large part of the land is owned by capitalists and speculators. Cherubusco is a Post Office and the "Summit" station upon the O. R. R. The Frontiers (Frontier p. o.), on the north border, and Wrightsville on the west border are hamlets. The first settlers located upon the Old Military Road and near the Frontiers previous to 1820. The town has an area of 42,054 acres.
