The Town of Clinton, settled in 1824, offers an alluring blend of the past preserved and small-town fun. With over 36 historic homes and buildings, some of the South’s best examples of Greek Revival, Victorian and Carolina I style architecture exist in this vibrant community offering visitors the chance to connect to America’s antebellum history.
The East Feliciana Parish Courthouse built in 1840, and the oldest in Louisiana still in operation today, combined with Lawyer’s Row, form a National Historic Landmark. The site served as the location for the popular 1950’s William Faulkner classic, The Long Hot Summer. Convenient maps are available for walking, biking and driving tours through the town’s historic locations.
Today, the town of Clinton offers new coffee shops and cafes in its revitalized Main Street district. And celebrations come easy with fun festivals that offer art, literature, history, music and great food! Clinton Community Market is a popular draw held the first Saturday of every month.
