Clayton Historical Museum

Joel Clayton, who founded Clayton in 1857, had this house built circa 1860, where Mitchell Creek meets Mount Diablo Creek.
After his death in 1872 the land was sold and the house had various uses. The Clayton Historical Society acquired it and in 1976 moved it to Main Street, joining it to a house of similar vintage brought from Oak Street.
The Clayton Historical Museum was a Bicentennial project, dedicated December 10, 1978.
