    Clinton: 1828-1938 is the Clinton Historical Society‘s summer exhibit for 2018. It will tell the story of the town and its seven hamlets through over 230 vintage photographs, some from glass plate negatives, as well as artifacts including rare samplers from the 1820s, items from the town’s one-room schoolhouses, and posters from the 1890s. “Getting There” will feature family transportation and “Timeless Tots” will exhibit early 1900’s candid photos of children with their toys.
