About Clayton, NC History

Around 1770, Clayton was built on a road created by the then NC Governor Tryon’s troops as they marched northwest from New Bern to Hillsborough against the Regulators.

Nearly 100 years later the railroad came through and the community had its first name—Stallings’ Station, since the depot for the North Carolina Railroad was in the home of Mrs. Sarah Stallings. The name lasted only three years, however, before officially becoming Clayton.  

By 1980, the population had grown to 4,091 and to 4,756 by 1990. The population then jumped to 6,973 in the 2000 census. In 2010, the population had increased to 16,116 and today, the Clayton population has exploded to 30,821 residents as manufacturers like Caterpillar and bio-pharmaceutical companies like Grifols and Novo Nordisk have become big local employers. 

The Clayton Banking Company Building, Clayton Graded School and Clayton Grammar School-Municipal Auditorium, Clayton Historic District, Cleveland School, Ellington-Ellis Farm, Walter R. and Eliza Smith Moore House, Sanders-Hairr House, and Stallings-Carpenter House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
