  3. DeWitt, Iowa, was founded in 1836 by our ancestors from the eastern states. DeWitt was named after DeWitt Clinton, the governor of New York from 1817-1822. The earliest settlers were the families of J.W. Bourne, Thomas Butterfield, Robert Bedford, Monroe Warren, John Cotton, John Buhler, William Horan and Jacob Leeper. The population remained about the same until 1856, when the building of the Chicago, Iowa & Nebraska railroad (now the Union Pacific) came to DeWitt, which gave the town the new impetus of the growth of nearly 5,500 people. By the 1870s, DeWitt was a thriving community with 10 attorneys, three agricultural dealers, two auctioneers, two bakers, five carpenters and builders, three drug stores, six carriage makers, cigar makers, coal and wood dealers, dentists, dry goods, farriers, flouring mills, furniture and undertaker dealers, seven grocery stores, grain and produce dealers, gunsmiths, hardware dealers, harness makers and four hotels, five insurance agents, livestock dealers, livery stables, lumber dealers, meat markets, dressmakers, painters, photographers, seven doctors, eight churches, jewelers and the DeWitt Observer. http://www.villageprofile.com/iowa/dewitt/09/topic.html The town of DeWitt has had many firsts in the State of Iowa. The first baseball team, the Hawks, was organized in DeWitt in 1860. The First Spear Water Tower was built in 1957. The Central Community Historical Society was formed in March of 1977. For the first 10 years, the society met and the donations were stored in various locations. During this time money was received and in 1987 the Central Community Historical Society purchased the present-day museum. The society has also acquired three other buildings during the past 20 years. The society has a very large collection of genealogy material, which includes more than 5,000 index cards with births, deaths, marriages and 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries. The society also has all of the Clinton County atlases, history books, school annuals, telephone books, more than 125 scrapbooks and numerous photos. There are four buildings filled with room settings, Army memorabilia, clothing, photo equipment, telephone equipment, a medical exhibit, a one-room school house, machinery, tools, fire equipment from the late 1800's and numerous other items. Our history has made DeWitt become a progressive community moving toward the future. View full record
  4. On February 19, 1810, the Ohio government authorized the creation of Clinton County. The county took its name from George Clinton, the Vice-President of the United States in 1810. Many of the county's early residents were members of the Society of Friends (Quakers). They played an important role in the Underground Railroad during the 1830s, 1840s, 1850s, and 1860s, helping runaway slaves find freedom in the North. The Quakers also established Wilmington College during the 1870s. For full text, see: http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/w/Clinton_County. View full record
