Still trying to find out what the seven smells are.... waiting to hear from the Chanber.

Clinton Iowa is near the community of Camanche, named after the Indian tribe.... this was WAY before spell check (1835).

Clinton, IA has a resored Railroad Depot to visit!

The town is so small that even one tornado in recorded history would put it well over the overall U.S. average.

It's on the Appalachian Trail and has Port Clinton Hotel and Restaurant Near Cabelas Hamburg PA store and the Appalachian Trail and the Port Clinton Peanut Shop.

(And very little else, http://pasdc.hbg.psu.edu/pasdc/censu...1604262136.pdf )

The town of Clinton, Tennessee was originally named Burrville, in honor of Aaron Burr in 1801. After the duel and death of Alexander Hamilton, the name was changed in 1809 to honor George Clinton, DeWitt’s Uncle, who succeeded Burr as Jefferson’s V.P.

We just can't leave Vic's "Seven Smells" hang out there in the air..... without some clarification. I asked Karen, from Clinton what that was all about, and she explains: "We have several industries here in Clinton, Iowa that have a tendency to give off their own distinct 'odors'. Here at the Chamber of Commerce we call that the smell of good paying jobs with benefits!!"

Thanks Karen! .....Now in MY dictionary odor is defined as "smell;fragrance; perfume", and industry as: "habitual diligence in any employment". Sounds to me like ONE of those "smells" is the sweet smell of success! when we think of Clinton IA, remember: "Industry and business have long sought out Clinton, Iowa. It has a strategic central location and a bright and able work force". They even have a DeWitt Iowa nearby!
