Overview
Clinton county owes a lot to its daring and tenacious women. Helena Augustine established the county's first kindergarten in Plattsburgh. The ever-versatile Alice Trainer Miner founded her museum in Chazy. For decades, Hettie Grant was a familiar voice to the residents of Saranac where she worked as the telephone operator from the switchboard in the kitchen of her home. Countless other women nurtured their families and communities with everyday acts of service. Young women follow in this tradition through local Girl Scout troops begun here more than a century ago. Discover artists, farmers, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs and activists from Peru, Schuyler Falls, Beekmantown and the other corners of Clinton County.
