Clinton County Historical Society presents an Oral History of Clinton County, Missouri. The project will include a video of descendants telling their Clinton County families’ history, coupled with pictures, old newspaper articles, etc. There are currently twenty families participating. Once recording is complete, the project will be put on YouTube, some Facebook pages (Clinton County Historical Society, Current Happenings in Plattsburg) and the Plattsburg MO website, and shared with many others. An article will appear in the Plattsburg Leader and a DVD of the individual history has been given to each participating family. DVDs are not available to the public at this time. A copy will be kept at the Clinton County Historical Society Museum. The video will cover a cross-section of Clinton County life, rural and towns, past and present.
