Initially known as Warwick, the village of Clinton, Ohio is in Summit County. Its first settlers were farmers, attracted to its rich soil and the water supply provided by the Tuscarawas River and Chippewa Creek. The village was laid out in 1816, growing slowly until 1827, when the Ohio and Erie Canal construction began, resulting in rapid population growth for a time. The railroad, which came through in the 1880s, put the canal out of business, and all of the canal locks were removed by 1913.
