New to Clayton?
Located just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina and the Research Triangle Park (RTP), Clayton is the largest town in Johnston County with a population of nearly 30,000. Clayton is the perfect place to live if you are looking for affordable housing options, great schools, diverse arts, and recreation options within one of North Carolina's expanding business sectors (manufacturing, bio-pharmaceutical, health care, etc.). And Clayton's proximity to the future Southeast Extension of the Triangle Expressway (I-540) make Clayton a first choice if you plan to work in the nearby RTP area. Clayton's best asset, however, will never show up in the numbers. What makes Clayton a true gem is its small town heart and wonderful sense of community.
