A wonderfully restored lighthouse and interpretive center on Valcour Island on Lake Champlain, the Bluff Point Lighthouse is open to visitors during summer months.
From 1755 to 1995, Clinton County played a pivotal role in the military history of the United States. Exhibit artifacts tell the history of this local impact including the Battle of Valcour in 1776 and the Battle of Plattsburgh in 1814.
The Clinton County Suffrage exhibit recounts the battles fought at the national, state and county levels beginning in 1848. The exhibit is accompanied by a booklet that tells the County story in detail.
Clinton County grew from mining, agriculture, dairy, retail and manufacturing industries. This gallery shows the tools used by early settlers, giving visitors a peak into their lives. Unique and priceless Redford glassware, with its distinctive turquoise tint, is a highlight of this exhibit.
America's Historic Lakes research project is being built to preserve the research collected and produced by James P. Millard for his site historiclakes.org. Hopefully the project will be completed later this winter and will be available for public viewing.
To commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War, in 2011 the Clinton County Historical Association decided to publish a book including a list of those soldiers who enlisted in Clinton County, listed by the community where they enlisted and a separate list of Civil War veterans who are buried in local cemeteries by cemetery.
