Governor Walter Leake built his
home, Mount Salus, in 1825. The
Mount Salus post office was authorized
that year and renamed Clinton in 1828
to honor Governor Dewitt Clinton of New
York. In 1828-30 the state legislature
considered relocating the Mississippi
capital to Clinton. In 1830, Clinton was
the first town in Hinds County to be
incorporated. Hampstead Academy
was founded in 1826 and was renamed
Mississippi Academy in 1827
and Mississippi College in 1830.
