Some promising silver deposits were discovered during the summer of 1863. For a while, prospects for Clinton looked very good. Numerous mines began operating yielding ore assayed at $1,000 per ton. Clinton, however, faded quickly as the ore deposits ran out. When the post office closed in December of 1864, the small camp began to empty. No activity has taken place since. Only some stone ruins mark the site.
