Clinton is a small town midway between Balclutha and Gore. Clinton is also the junction of an alternative route for Invercargill travelers to bypass Gore. Clinton is a very small place but that said met the synopsis criteria. But Clinton refuses to be a two horse town, and they got over that by a three horse display.
Clinton was named for Henry Pelham-Clinton, 5th Duke of Newcastle, and former British Secretary of State for the Colonies.
