About Clayton, N.C.
Clayton, North Carolina exhibits rapid growth as the second largest town in Johnston County. This sector of North Carolina, part of the Raleigh Metro Area and in close proximity to the Research Triangle Business Park, is one of the nation's fastest expanding regions.
Clayton formed around a small depot for the North Carolina Railroad, known as Stalling's Station. The town incorporated in 1869. The construction of two major interstates, I-40 and I-95, opened all of Johnston County up to major transformation. From a predominately agricultural region in North Carolina's Coastal Plains, Johnston County's strategic location is making it a prime relocation site for residents and businesses.
