History of Clarkston, Utah
by Kaylene Allen Griffin (Links Added)

Whether you think of Clarkston, Utah, as home, the granary of Cache Valley, or an isolated place, I will always remember Clarkston for the kind, warm, genuine people who live there. Owning the store in town for more than fifty years, uniquely put our family in the center of everyone's sorrows, joys and challenges on a day-by-day basis.

"Within a valley of the Wasatch Mountain range, in the northwest part of Cache Valley, the town of Clarkston is located, and her homes hug the foothills of the western mountain which is known as "Clarkston Mountain." The highest peak of Clarkston Mountain bears the descriptive name of "Gunsight;" through this high mountain land the deer roam, luring many seasonal hunters. The mountain streams and springs fill the water sheds that supply culinary water for Clarkston, Newton, and Trenton. Across the valley and stretching up the slopes of the surrounding hills are neatly blocked dry farming areas. Livestock graze in the meadows where the creek waters flow."
