Also see . . . Clintonville. The hamlet of Clintonville is located on the Ausable River, a short distance from Lake Champlain. A once-bustling industrial community, from 1833 to 1890 it was home to the Peru Steel & Iron Company. At its height the company possessed one of the region’s largest bloomery forges until the 1890s, when it ceased operation. Little evidence exists today of Clintonville’s former industry.
