organization's programs provide a
quality educational experience intended to heighten awareness of the
greater Clinton area's rich heritage. Our purpose is to inspire our
visitors with a sense of how each footprint left behind a mark and
with it the opportunity and responsibilities of preservation.
Rhoads-Harter house focuses on the life of a typical family, of ten,
living in a bustling canal village during the last quarter of the 1800's.
Carriage House focuses upon the influence the canal had on everyday
people and the industries that evolved... shipping. mining, glass and railroad.
museums are suitable for all ages. Our school programs are specific
to the 3rd through 5th grades. Other age level programs are available.
"This was Clinton" is a fifteen minute slide show featuring
over 150 original photos taken in the 1800s, some of which have never
been seen by the public.
Village of Clinton is an unequaled combination of nature, culture,
recreation and human accomplishments reinvested in an historic
landscape virtually untouched by time. Even today, it is very unique,
a couple miles off the interstate and you drive right into yesterday.
It also contains some very unique sites to visit. Where else will you
find a "Sports School", a "Belly Dancing School",
and in the very near future a Veterans Memorial Park within a few
hundred feet of each other?
