Clarksburg Historical Commission

The Clarksburg Historical Commission has been busy organizing news clippings and photos for binders.  We have two binders of articles and photos pertaining to the Clarksburg Volunteer Fire Company, a military binder and newspaper books from the 1930’s to present day.  As you’re cleaning out your closets, etc. and come across articles and artifacts pertaining to Clarksburg, please get in touch with us.  We would love to be able to copy articles and photos that would be of historical value, if not from years ago, it could be something current that would be of value years from now.  Family photos (hopefully with names & dates attached), news clippings,  photos of old buildings that are no longer in existence, school records/photos, VFW events, obituaries, items from former Clarksburg businesses (or even current ones)…anything Clarksburg related.   Also, we could use family histories/genealogies of Clarksburg residents.   If you’re not sure, give one of us a call.  If we can’t use it, we’ll get back to you.

In organizing old town reports, we are still missing those prior to 1885 and also for the year 1992.  You may even find items at a tag sale that we could use.  From time to time, we’ll be publishing old photos, hoping that the people in the photos can be identified.

Do you know anything about the peat moss factory at the Tamarack Swamp?  Or other former businesses?

Were you a member of the class at Clarksburg Elementary School that worked on the civil war quilt?  It will be hanging at Town Hall in the Historical Commission room soon and we would love to hear from you. 

In 2023, we will be celebrating Clarksburg’s 225 years.  It was founded March 2, 1798, but we will have our celebration over the summer months.  It will also be the 125th year of the Clarksburg Town Library.

Members of the Clarksburg Historical Commission are as follows.  Please feel free to contact any one of us with information. 

Following are a few photos that you may be able to help us identify.  The two small ones are of “Paulie”, but we have no last name.  And, if you know who “Andy” is, we’d like to know his last name too.
