Clinton County Historical Association's Newsletter

First published as a “frankly experimental” endeavor in November of 1960, and first edited by distinguished local historians Allan S. Everest and Charles W. McClellan, North Country Notes has chronicled local history, and the deeds of CCHA, ever since. A subscription to NCN has long been a perk of CCHA membership, and still is. We invite you to read our most recent issues below, and come back to check out our North Country Notes archive, which we’ll be gradually building over the next year.
