Situated on the eastern most section of Iowa, along the banks of the Mississippi River, Clinton is a city in and the county seat of Clinton County. Founded in 1855, Clinton has grown from a one street river town into a city with nearly 30,000 residents and a prosperous business community. Clinton’s river location provides sport and recreational activities.

During the late 1800s, the cities of Lyons and Clinton quickly became centers of the lumber industry and were regarded as the "Lumber Capital of the World". By 1892, the sawmills of Clinton, Lyons and Camanche produced more than 195 million board feet. By 1900, as the northern forests were depleted, the sawmills closed. The river and railroad have remained as the impetus of Clinton’s economy, providing economical transportation in all directions, thus attracting manufacturing and heavy industry to the city. Since the early 21st century, the Clinton area has prospered as an industrial center, with a steadily growing list of products and services, which are delivered to all parts of the nation and the world.
