Big Tree/Brewery

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Where Jewel sits today was the Brewing Company. Somewhere in this vicinity was the Big Tree that separated the town of Lyons & Clinton. More importantly than the exact location, the Big Tree was very real. Even in the 1870s, you see people referencing the Big Tree, and really work was done by Clinton up to the Tree and Lyons would work up to the tree. In directories, home on this street were listed as so many houses from The Big Tree.
