Description: A colour photograph of William Clarkson's house located at 1140 Clarkson Road North and located next door to Warren Clarkson's General Store. The two storey (?) house is painted white with light blue trim around the top windows. The front porch is all enclosed with plastic sheeting and has a grey coloured roof.

This house is ca. 1850. William Clarkson was the son of Warren Clarkson, who owned the general store and post office located in Clarkson Corners. In 1858 William married Lorenda Hemphill. William took over his father's store in the 1860s. In 1875 William became the first postmaster, after the post office opened in Clarkson. In the 1950s the building was used for Bill Elliot's fruit Market. The house now sits empty. (Information taken from Kathleen Hicks Clarkson book.)
