Small-Town Charm Meets Big-City Possibility in Clayton

The Town of Clayton is perfectly positioned near I-40, US 70, and NC 42 to make quick access to the rest of the Triangle. Even though it’s rapidly growing, the town has still kept the laid-back charm that makes it appealing to families and commuters.

But this isn’t just your average small country town; with its growth, Clayton has been exploring new cultural ventures, like its annual Clayton Sculpture Trail. Throughout Clayton, visitors will find art pieces ranging from whimsical to thought-provoking. Past Sculpture Trail pieces have been located in public squares, the library, town hall, and roundabouts.
