Our volunteer gardeners have been very hard at work for the last two summers landscaping our entire ground of the Sarah Jane Williams Heritage Centre and Waverley Place (formerly the Bowmanville Museum). Come walk through to watch our seasonal changes, it’s beautiful!

The Sarah Jane Williams Heritage Centre, Waverley Place, and the Clarke Schoolhouse are available to rent for special occasions. The stunning grounds and Edwardian interior of Waverley Place are popular locations for both wedding photos and ceremonies year-round. Consider booking your next corporate event, workshop, meeting, or family picnic at one of our sites.


The rental of the Clarington Museum’s grounds for the purpose of portraits includes the use of Waverley Place’s verandah. However, it excludes uses of washroom facilities at the museums after regular hours.

Small wedding services, receptions, and showers may also be held at Waverley Place.

For more information regarding rentals please contact our program coordinator Amy Barron at or call the museum office at (905) 623-2734.
