Clinton's history goes back to rural farmland in the 1770's. In the 1850's, John Surratt, wife Mary and their children, moved to the simple crossroads community, opening first a tavern, then a hotel, livery and post office. The community grew and was named Surrattsville. The family owned slaves and were involved in the secessionist movement, as were many in the area. Mr. Surratt died in 1862. Heavily in debt, Mary and two of their children moved to Washington DC where she ran a boarding house. She colluded with John Wilkes Booth in the Lincoln assassination, was convicted of conspiracy and became the first woman to be hung in the United States. The town ultimately changed its name to Clinton but the Surratt association continues with historical structures and the local high school still bearing the Surratsville name.
While homes with lots of acreage can sometimes extend into the seven-figure range in Clinton, the median sales is markedly lower at $275,000. Is this the result of averaging in condos? Not really – 89.4% of properties for sale are detached single-family homes. Why are the prices so low then? The local market has been dropping ever since the national housing crash – prices didn't actually begin to rebound until 2012. There's a large housing supply at present, as well as a number of short sale opportunities. Drive around the pleasant upscale neighborhoods with landscaped yards, new SUVs in the driveways and recently built homes for sale and check out the prices; $300,000 to $400,000 will land you a spacious four-bedroom custom Colonial.
In addition to nice homes, great prices and plenty of greenspace. Clinton is nicely positioned for commuters. Andrews Air Force Base lies immediately to the north, the 95/495 Capital Beltway is just a few miles away and the westernmost tip of the community extends almost all the way to the Potomac River. Parks in the area include Louise Cosca Regional, Piscataway Park and Windbrook Recreation Center. For groceries there's a Safeway, the locally owned Noah's Market and the recently opened G-Mart offering a wide range of international goods and delicacies for authentic foodies. There's also plenty of restaurants, plus gyms, coffee houses and hardware stores. From a unique Civil War era history to a buyer's real estate market, Clinton has lots to offer.
