CLAYTON IS TURNING 150!

1969 was a year to remember in Clayton. The men grew beards. Families dressed in pioneer clothing. There were special tours, three grand balls, class reunions, old-fashioned bargain days with merchants, a Miss Centennial coronation, and a time capsule burial. The Clayton community came together in incredible solidarity to mark the 100th anniversary of our town and now, 50 years later, it’s time for the community to come together again to celebrate Clayton’s Sesquicentennial!
