Living and Working in Clinton, Iowa

Clinton is nestled along the upper banks of the mighty Mississippi river – an area that has prospered since its founding due in part to the river and transcontinental railroads. Today, more than 40,000 productive employees call Clinton home. Clinton has also been home to one of Purina's factories since 1969.

This Midwestern small town offers many activities for associates and their families, such as wine tasting events at Wide River Winery. Eagle Point Park is also a unique hot spot as it overlooks the Mississippi River and features a stone look-out post referred to as the "Tower" by locals. Another notable place is The Sawmill Museum, which offers a recreated lumberjack camp and demonstrates the processes and action of an old-time sawmill. The Franciscan University, a local four-year school, is known for originally being founded as a girl's boarding school. To date, it offers various academic programs, including business, education, liberal arts, and human sciences.

Locals look forward to the festive, annual events that Clinton offers. The Riverboat Days, Iowa's largest July 4th celebration, Living History Days, and the Christmas Walk, are just a few of the attractions that bring locals together for fun times and celebrations.

Many factory associates also choose to live in or visit Davenport and the other Quad-Cities. This close proximity to the city provides a change of scenery, as well as diversified activities for associates and their families.
