Clinton County

Formed off of property from Cumberland and Wayne Counties, Clinton County was formed on February 20, 1835, and named after DeWitt Clinton who was a former governor of New York and was also Kentucky Native. Sitting at 205 square miles, it is home 10,206 residents. Not really much to type on the history due to most of the records being destroyed in the courthouse fires of both 1864 and 1980.
