Area Data :

The Village of Clinton is located 39 km north of the Trans-Canada Highway 1 and Cariboo Highway 97 junction at Cache Creek and sits at an elevation of 887 metres. This active community of 650 residents, with its colorful history of over 150 years and unique western atmosphere, was founded as a direct result of the "boom" of the Cariboo Gold Rush. Incorporated in 1963, Clinton boasts hosting one of British Columbia's oldest continuously running events; the Clinton Annual Ball, now held in May of each year. As a midway point between Vancouver and Prince George, Clinton serves as a centre providing amenities to both its residents and visitors. Clinton's economic base is driven by the forest industry with other important employment sectors being ranching, retail trade and tourism.

More information can be found on the Village of Clinton website.

The topography immediately surrounding Clinton is one of gentle tree clad slopes, with a modest Lime Mountain dominating the view from town. However, dramatic viewscapes are close by Marble Range, just 20 minutes west of town, features craggy mountain cliffs, caves, sinkholes, disappearing streams, cliffs, chasms and crenellated limestone karsts. Chasm Provincial Park, and its Painted Chasm, is a 20-minute drive north of town. This miniature version of the Grand Canyon, the Painted Chasm displays successive rock layers of ancient lava flow in tones of red, brown, yellow and purple.

History :

Originally known as 47 Mile House or 47 Mile, Clinton was named in 1863 upon completion of the Cariboo Wagon Road in the area for Henry Fiennes Pelham Clinton, the 5th Duke of Newcastle, who was Colonial Secretary from 1854-1854 and 1859-1864.

Every May Clinton is home to the Annual Ball which features a rodeo and dance. This is one of British Columbia's oldest continual events having first been held in 1867 and was a highlight of the social calendar in the British Columbia Interior for many decades. The Clinton Museum, built in 1892, has a number of historical artifacts on display that date back to the gold rush and founding of the area.
