    As part of the town’s 200th anniversary in 1986, the Clinton Historical Society organized a Landmarks Designation Committee to identify buildings whose age, architecture, importance to Clinton’s history, and state of preservation made them historically significant. In the 1988 nominations, the committee targeted buildings in each of the town’s seven hamlets. Properties designated as landmarks by the Clinton Historical Society are eligible for protection under Chapter 250 of the Town of Clinton Zoning Law.

    Join us as we celebrate these 41 landmark buildings with an independent self-guided driving tour from 11am-4pm followed by a talk and reception from 4-5pm at the Creek Meeting House. Speaker to be announced.

    Driving tour maps will be available for purchase on the day of the tour at the Creek Meeting House. $10 for members and $15 for non-members.

    This pioneering documentary film depicts the lives of the indigenous Inuit people of Canada's northern Quebec region. Although the production contains some fictional elements, it vividly shows how its resourceful subjects survive in such a harsh climate, revealing how they construct their igloo homes and find food by hunting and fishing. The film also captures the beautiful, if unforgiving, frozen landscape of the Great White North, far removed from conventional civilization. Directed by Robert J. Flaherty.

    Admission is free for CHS members and children and $3 for non-members. Refreshments will be available.
