A Brief History
Clinton as we know it today is the result of the dreams and hard work of generations of its residents. Starting with early settlers such as the Adairs, the Youngs and the Copelands, the community was spurred on by the dreams of William Plumer Jacobs and the entrepreneurial spirit of Mercer Silas Bailey and his descendants. The town has been through many changes, starting out as a rural crossroads and eventually developing into both a cultural and industrial center. Clinton continues to change, but the devotion and energy of its citizens ensure that it will remain a vital city for generations to come. Join local resident Nancy Griffith as she follows Clinton's ever-changing story and honors those who nurtured it.
