Clayton, NY

Clayton, NY

Soon after it was settled in 1822, Clayton became a major shipbuilding and lumbering port. Dozens of charming buildings from this magnificent era remain. The Clayton Chamber of Commerce is an information hub, including a guide to the Historic Walking Tour.

Clayton is home to some of the most unique museums in the 1000 Islands including the renowned Antique Boat Museum. The Thousand Islands Museum, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, houses special exhibits of world-class muskies and hunting decoys from the past and present. A new archival library is open in the museum for research of river heritage. The Thousand Islands Arts Center showcases a beautiful collection of handweaving, and offers art exhibitions and workshops for all ages.

Anglers can launch their pursuit of a trophy muskellunge or walleye from one of Clayton’s many river access points. Setting out with a local fishing guide is a great way to guarantee a successful outing.

For some local flavor, stop at one of Clayton’s fine restaurants for some St. Lawrence River cuisine. Take in Irish, jazz and bluegrass concerts on the waterfront, or take part in some of the activities at Recreation Park.

 

The Antique Boat Museum

At the Antique Boat Museum you’ll find the largest and most impressive collection of fresh-water recreational boats in North America. The Museum is especially noted for its St. Lawrence River Skiff and classic powerboat collection. Every August, the museum hosts the nation’s oldest antique boat show.
