Road Trippin' Clinton The Sawmill Museum
CLINTON, IA (CBS2/FOX28) This town is known for its rails and its river, but not far from both is a living history lesson in what transformed Clinton from a small hamlet with a few bars, into a boom town! In the late 1800s sawmills sprang up on the banks of the Mississippi River to process millions of logs floated down the waterway from Wisconsin and Minnesota. It is not an exaggeration at all that Clinton and its lumber barons built the nation. As we continue our ROAD TRIPPIN adventures we take you inside the destination that tells that story so well. Kids can become lumberjacks and parents can relive a fascinating era that probably has connections to the home they live in today. Pack up the car and come along as we take a short drive down Highway 30 to the Clinton Sawmill Museum !
