Port Clinton History

In 1824, DeWitt Clinton, a famous statesman of New York, first proposed to establish a canal from the Portage River to the Ohio River at Cincinnati. Huge tracts of land were bought in this area but 1,212 acres which were owned by Horton Howard in Sandusky County were excluded. The land from this area was bought in 1827, by Ezekiel Smith Haines. The village of Port Clinton was established on this site. It is believed that the town plat was laid out on June 16, 1828. It was Ezekiel Haines who named this place Port Clinton in honor of the New York Governor, Dewitt Clinton.
