Clearwater was founded back in 1856, with settlers coming from New England and Canada. Those native to the area referred to it as “Suland,” while it became known as “The Big Woods” to those new to the area. In 1897, what’s known as a “cloud burst” destroyed the city’s mill dam and bridge for railroad. An interesting side note: Clearwater has the longest operating ferry on the entire Mississippi, according to the city. Today Clearwater’s population is just over 1,770 people.
