The Town of Clayton, in Johnston County, North Carolina is built on the site of an Indian trading path through territory that is now Johnston and Wake counties. Called the Green Path, this old Indian route was established by Tuscaroras, an Iroquoian-speaking tribe. The Town of Clayton was incorporated, along with Bentonsville, Beulah, Boon Hill, Elevation, Ingrams, Meadow, O'Neals, Pleasant Grove, Selma, Smithfield, and Wilders, in 1869. With a 2007 population of approx 36,196, Clayton is one of the largest municipalities in Johnston County.

Although there is much controversy about the naming of Clayton, NC, there is no doubt that it was named in honor of Senator John Middleton Clayton (1796 - 1856) from Delaware. Located near two interstate highways: I-40 and I-95, Clayton sits on the western edge of Johnston County. Clayton is about 15 minutes to the east of the state capital of North Carolina, Raleigh, and about 30 minutes from NC's world famous Research Triangle Park.
