Museum Reopening: Delayed

Due to the extension of county health orders, museums must remain closed at this time. When we do reopen, join us for our new exhibit celebrating Joel Clayton's birthplace and Clayton, CA's twinned city: Bugsworth, Derbyshire, England.

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.”

1964 Tour of Clayton

Feeling a little stir-crazy while sheltering in place at home? Checkout this 1964 Tour of Clayton, CA by former Society President Dick Ellis and friend of the Museum, Bob Daugherty. While the population was only 1023 people, the town’s distinct features remain recognizable today.
