Founded in 1823, Clinton is a fascinating city. It is located on the northwestern edge of Jackson, Mississippi, and the historic Natchez Trail Parkway cuts through the center of the city. The parkway roughly follows the path of the Natchez Trace, a historic footpath that stretched an impressive 440 miles, from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee. It was created by Native Americans, who used this route for centuries. Later, explorers and traders used the path, as well. Some parts of the Old Trace are still accessible, and several of those original footpaths are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Clinton is also home to Mississippi College, the oldest college in Mississippi. It is the second-oldest Baptist university in the world. It was the first coeducational college in the country to grant a degree to a female. Mississippi College was established in 1826 and features some impressive historic architecture, including Provine Chapel, which opened in 1860 and is the oldest building on campus.
