CLUTIER IOWA THE STORY OF CLUTIER . . .

POPULATION

The town of Clutier, situated on a gently sloping tract of land in the Salt Creek Valley of Oneida Township in Tama County, was founded in 1900 by Wm. E. Brice, the principal capitalist and promoter of the railroad project known as the Iowa, Minnesota, and Northern. Mr. Brice named the town for his sister, Maude, and brother-in-law, Bertram L. Clutier.

DEMOGRAPHICS

Clutier, the youngest incorporated town in Tama County, soon became a Czech settlement. Today, more than a century later, Clutier retains its small town hospitality and is still well known for its distinctive Czech bakery, among which the kolaches and rohlicky are the long time favorites. Clutier Fun Days, an annual celebration, is held the first weekend in August, and several old fashioned band concerts are held during the summer months. Clutier is also home to the charging Czechs, the girls state basketball champions of 1942. The residents of Clutier have a genuine interest in keeping Clutier a great place to live and raise a family.
