About Clayburn Village

Clayburn Village was established in 1906, as British Columbia's first 'company town' by Charles Maclure, son of pioneer John Maclure. The Clayburn company produced bricks and clay-fired products until 1931, and their town consisted of a school, bank, three stores, a church, and many of the homes seen along Old Clayburn Road, today.

Clayburn Village Community Society (CVCS), is a non-profit organization that oversees the historical buildings in the village.

The sale is intended to raise funds to restore and promote the community's historical museum, located on Wright Street beneath the Clayburn Community Hall, and to perform building maintenance and upgrades to the Community Hall and Church.

Deemed a federal heritage site in 1996, the Clayburn Community Hall and Church are now rented out to the public for wedding ceremonies, and other public and private events, to learn more, please visit www.clayburnvillage.com
