Clinton is a city of 9,000 people (2010) in the Great Plains Country of Oklahoma. It was platted in like 1902, but what really seemed to make it bloom was when it became a service-oriented community towards Route 66 travel, with cafes, motels, and filling stations to accommodate travelers. Even the King (Elvis Presley) was known to stay here a couple times.
