Clinton Township History

On August 12, 1818, Clinton Township was formed as the "Huron Township." It derived its name from the Huron River. As there was already another Huron River to the south of Detroit, the name of the river was changed to Clinton, and the township followed suit. It was renamed Clinton Township on July 17, 1824. This name was in honor of DeWitt Clinton, the governor of New York.
