St. Johns History

DeWitt Clinton, a prominent American statesman, was the first settler in present day Clinton County. He conceptualized an artificial waterway to facilitate transportation. It eventually became the Erie Canal, and was responsible for bringing a number of settlers to the area. The community of St. Johns was laid out several decades later and was established by John Swegles and Rev. C. A. Lamb in 1853. The "Saint" part of the name refers to the Reverend's efforts, while "John" was in honor of John Swegles. St. Johns was initially incorporated as a village in 1857, and was granted city status in 1904. It is the seat of Clinton County.
