History & History Related Items

Originally, the area was used by Native Americans as a section of the trail known as the Great Sauk Trail. The Indians stopped at an area they called Oak Opening because of the open area in the abundant oak trees here. The first white settlers here was a man from Vermont, John Tyrell who came in 1825. He purchased land here and then returned to Vermont. When he returned in 1831, he built a cabin on his property. When a military road was authorized in 1825, it was placed near Oak Opening at the River Raisin. New settlers from the New York area came around the same time and named their new settlement Clinton after the governor of their home state, New York. Alpheus Kies was the first permanent settlers coming here from New York in 1829.
