WE ARE THE CLINTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY,
DUTCHESS COUNTY, NEW YORK

The Town of Clinton Historical Society, also known as the Clinton Historical Society, is headquartered in the Creek Meeting House, which was built by the Society of Friends in Clinton Corners during the Revolutionary War. Dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of the Town of Clinton, the society publishes a newsletter and books, operates an archive and a local landmarks program, and offers historical programs, exhibits, music programs, and fundraising and social events. It is chartered by the State of New York as an educational organization and is a 501(c)3 non-profit membership organization.

History

History is told in many different ways and we offer three ways of becoming familiar with the Town of Clinton: a chronology of the town’s formation, a brief formal history extracted from the Town’s 2012 Comprehensive Plan, and a charming series of essays on local history published by the Upton Lake Grange in 1959.
