The following information was submitted by: Cynthia Stulpin, President Clinton Beach Assn, Inc
"There are two beach areas in Clinton with similar names. One is Clinton Beach and the other is the Clinton Town Beach. The first was established around 1900 as a vacation destination, thus it's name. The town beach was established later. Clinton Beach is still a private community, whereas the Town Beach is the public beach
This older postcard (not sure of the date) is standing on the beach looking inland, toward the harbor.
The 1997 postcard below is taken from about the same location, but looking ''seaward" (out to Long Island Sound).
Cynthia also writes, " It might also interest you to know that the "fields" in the old aerial photo below, are still there. The ones on the right side are now officially a wildlife sanctuary. The ones to the left side of are mostly owned by the state, but some still belong to the property owners that have the house(s) in front."
For the fun of it, if you'd like to see more of Clinton Beach (not the Town Beach), surf on over to Cynthia's site, www.idigclintonbeaches.org. It's still a work in progress, but you might enjoy some of the photos.
