Clinton County History
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.
