History

Clinton County was formed on February 19, 1810 from sections of Highland County and Warren County. It was named after George Clinton, a soldier, politician, Governor of New York, and Vice President of the United States. According to The Descendants of William Sabin, compiled by Gordon Alan Morris, Thomas J. Prittie, and Dixie Prittie, the first Caucasian child born in the county was Mary Stuart Sabin, daughter of Dr. Warren Sabin, c. 1812.

Geography

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 412 square miles (1,067.1 km2). 411 square miles (1,064.5 km2) is land and 1 square mile (2.6 km2) (0.34%) is water.

The entire county lies within the Little Miami River watershed, with the exception of extreme eastern areas, which are within the Scioto River watershed. Clinton County lies within the till plains physiographic region, and is somewhat flat or gently rolling. The northern two thirds of the county were covered with an ice sheet during the Wisconsinan Stage, while the southern third was covered by ice sheets during the much older Illinoian Stage. Because of such a history with ice, glacial features are readily found on the landscape, such as moraines and kames.
