Clarke Schoolhouse

The Clarke Schoolhouse, located on the former land of Nathanial Powers, the first settler in Kirby, has the distinction of being the first designated heritage building in the community.

A turn of the century Blacksmith Shop, outdoor displays of agricultural equipment, and  the Volunteer Building surround the One Room Schoolhouse. All depict early pioneer life in Clarke Township.

Changing exhibits throughout the year in the schoolhouse offer glimpses into the history of Clarington.
