Clinton County History
Is situated in the north-western part of the State, bounded on the west and south by Buchanan, Platte and Clay, which separate this county from the Missouri river. About two-thirds of the area of this county is undulating prairie land, fertile and easily tilled; the remaining one-third is timber land, confined principally to the water courses and valleys. Blue and gray limestone and sandstone are abundant in some portions of the county, and there are indications of coal in several localities, though no thorough investigations have been made, as fuel is plenty. Several of the streams are rapid and have unimproved mill seats upon them. The soil is fertile and will produce good crops of all kinds of grass, grain, fruit and vegetables grown in this latitude. Honest, industrious, loyal farmers and mechanics will here find all healthy climate, good soil, and a market for all kinds of articles they can produce.
