Welcome back to "where" it all began. In the mid 1830s, Buell crossed the river and established a ferry business to get from what is now Fulton to Lyons. He built his first house a little north and west of this rock, but when you look at, just take all what you saw in. It all started here, probably a pathway for many years by tribes, it was the narrow part of the river. It was a great location for a ferry business and maybe even a rail bridge. Well the bridge company built it a few milies south (more or less where it is today) and thus began Clinton in 1855. Forty years later, the two towns joined.
