Clinton Huron County's Mural Town
Clinton has the distinction of displaying artistic murals on various downtown buildings. The paintings depict historic icons of the town and enhance the heritage aspect of Huron County’s finest Victorian architecture. The town was also the place where radar technology was developed and tested for aircraft surveillance during World War 2. Downtown Millenium Park is a lovely spot to stroll and enjoy the flower gardens beside the clock tower and information booth. Charming shops and restaurants add to the local attractions.
The original CNR School on Wheels Railroad Museum car was one of seven ingenious, railway classrooms that brought education to remote Northern Ontario enclaves through the dedicated work of Clinton resident Fred Sloman. The car is restored to its original condition. The museum is located in a beautiful picnic area at 76 Victoria Terrace, off Hwy 4 at the south end of Clinton. It opens Victoria Day to end of September, Thu.-Sun. and holidays 11 a.m.- 4 p.m.
