Clinton Township Historical Society
Clinton Township, MI
The history of Clinton Township is as distinctive and diverse as its citizens. From its humble beginnings in 1782 as a missionary settlement in the wilderness, blazing the Moravian Trail, the first road through the interior of Michigan, to the unfulfilled promise of the Clinton-Kalamazoo Canal connecting both coastlines, on into the growth and progress of the 20th Century, encompassing such local legacies as the Detroit Creamery Dairy Farm and the Mt. Clemens Rose Gardens, Clinton Township has been called one of the most historically significant sites in the State of Michigan.
The non-profit Greater Clinton Township Historical Society is the working arm (and army) of the Clinton Township Historical Commission. Together, both groups are actively working to preserve and showcase Clinton Township’s rich heritage for our community.
The Clinton Township Historical Village is located at Romeo Plank and Canal Roads, near the original Clinton-Kalamazoo Canal, and includes the original 1880’s Town Hall (museum), as well as the newly-refurbished 1830’s Williams Log Cabin (canal worker’s home). The Village is open on special events and by appointment, with costumed docent tour guides, and host craft activities for all ages.
