Membership & Volunteer


Welcome to the Clayton Historical Society and Museum's website!

The Clayton Historical Society was founded in 1974 to "research, collect, record, preserve, display, borrow, share, and interpret local history information and memorabilia, and to promote understanding of Clayton origins and development."

 Upcoming Event


Hope you are enjoying the summer, with back-to-school just around the corner.  This would be a great time to bring the kiddos into the Museum to checkout our School Days exhibit as they prepare to head back to school themselves.  More information to the right. 



Check out what we sell at the Museum's Gift Shop online.  All items can be purchased online and picked up at the Museum.  Makes great, unique gifts!
