Clinton is 60 seconds away from modern U.S. Highway 78, but be ready to take a big step back in time. It's in Hunterndon County, NJ, where the scenery is bucolic and the politics bareknuckled.
The Hunterdon Art Museum is by a mill pond, created by the Raritan River. Imagine the political maneuvering to make this museum a reality.
This bridge crosses the Raritan and takes you to...
…downtown with shops in historic commercial buildings.
Here's a close-up of some of the art spilling onto the sidewalk in the photo above.
The Parry House, full of professional office and studios. The sign out front said space was available. I'd like to work there.
Here's the art museum up close. Look at that fieldstone! How about you? Would you like to visit this place?
