Situated in the heart of northern Hunterdon County on the South Branch of the Raritan River one can step back to a more peaceful era. A large millpond just upstream from a restored steel pony truss bridge feeds a spectacular waterfall which powered two historic mills on opposite banks of the river. This very photogenic view is now home to both the Hunterdon Historical and Art Museums. Stroll across the pony truss bridge, and 19th century small town America unfolds before you on Clinton’s historic Main Street. Coffee shops, restaurants serving international cuisine, art stores featuring talented local artists, jewelry, wine, and a bookstore can busy the visitor for a full day’s browsing and shopping and antiquing.
Clinton hosts a variety of events year-round, such as antique and car shows, the spring Pansy Festival, the Clinton Rubber Ducky Race, the popular 5K Sprintin Clinton race, November’s Dickens Days, and the Clinton Guild Christmas Parade in December.
