Description: The Clarkson railway station was originally located on the north side of the railway tracks, behind the store and Post Office on Clarkson Road. The railroad right-of-way was secured across Warren Clarkson’s lots in 1853. It brought commerce to local fruit and vegetable farmers. Corn, apples and especially strawberries were produced in Clarkson. The corner of Clarkson’s property, later purchased by the Great Western Railway, became known as Clarkson’s Corner. The railway siding carried the same name. The apostrophe in Clarkson’s was removed from the sign in 1956, although Corner had long since disappeared. Note that the name Clarksons appears in this photograph. From the Harold Hare Collection.
