A town of over 26,000 residents, Clinton has been named one of Mississippi's Most Livable Cities.
Residents in Clinton truly value all of the amenities that are the key factors of exceptional quality of life, such as education, housing, churches, recreation, safety, health care, shopping and entertainment. In addition, being located in central Mississippi and adjacent to the capital city of Jackson, Clinton is in close proximity to a wide variety of other business, recreational and entertainment activities.
Our downtown historic brick streets, constructed in 1929, welcome you to a charming Olde Towne community. With many historic homes throughout this district, you can walk back into a time when life was slower and enjoy Southern hospitality at its best. Bordered by Mississippi College, Olde Towne enjoys a great mix of students and families browsing through antique shops and an old book store. Take a leisurely walk along tree lined streets without the worry of busy traffic laden streets. Take a jog on one of five walking trails located in one of our award winning parks.

Today, Clinton continues to evolve as a community blessed with an unparalleled quality of life, hardworking volunteers, educational opportunities, abundant/varied recreational activities and a willing "can do" spirit.
