Worth a Visit: The Clinton Historical Society

Jumpin’ Zach Flash, 96.1 WODZ

If you are from Clinton, or would like to know more about the history of Clinton, you should visit the Clinton Historical Society. I find local history fascinating, especially the history of the Village of Clinton and the Town of Kirkland. I recently visited the Oneida County Historical Society. So, I decided to stop by the Clinton Historical Society, too. It’s definitely worth a visit.

The exhibit in the historical society that I enjoyed the most was the old pharmacy. The Bristol-Meyers Company (Clinton Pharmaceutical Company) began in Clinton, and there are many artifacts set up that take you back in time to the 1800s.

Clinton is known for hockey. And the historical society has a section of its museum dedicated to the Clinton Comets hockey team and the Clinton Arena. If you are a local sports fan, this is a must-see exhibit.

The museum features an exhibit on Clinton Central School, too. There’s an old desk, and there are two seats from the former CCS auditorium.

The Clinton Historical Society is open Wednesdays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (according to the official website). There is no admission for the museum; however, donations are appreciated.
