  • . Jonas Gibbings and Stephen Vanderburg of Toronto settled in 1831, but William Rattenbury, who took over Vanderburg's tavern in 1844, is considered the town's founder.
  • He laid out building lots and called the place Clinton in honour of Lord Clinton on whose land in Hampshire, England, his father had been a tenant farmer.
  • The post office was named Clinton in 1853. Earlier, the settlement was also known as Vanderburg's, The Corners, Corners, and Rattenbury's Corners.

  • Clinton has a unique museum in Sloman Park: the restored CNR school car is one of seven that travelled throughout Northern Ontario providing schooling to children in isolated areas.
  • Teachers Fred and Cela Sloman of Clinton had living quarters in one end of the classroom car in which they spent nine months of the year and also raised their own five children.
