New Exhibit

Clayton Farms

These days, most people don’t really understand how food is grown, much less how farming has shaped our local history since 1852. The Clayton Historical Society Museum’s new exhibit, Clayton Farms, tells the story of our local farmers. Find out: what crops could be grown here without summer rain; why Clayton vineyards were destroyed in the 1900s and 1920s; how wine was made in the 19th century; who bought most of Clayton’s fresh fruit and vegetables; why farming machinery changed from horsepower to gasoline power; how Clayton farmers helped the war effort during World Wars I and II; and much more.
