Additional Information

Clayton, DE is a Census-Designated Place: a region that is recognized for census purposes but is not technically a town or a city. While the Lenape people have occupied the area since before 1200, the area saw population growth from colonization beginning in the 1600s. The region was dubbed Claymont in 1856 when a reverend from West Virginia settled in the area and renamed the settlement after his family’s plantation. In 2020, the population of Clayton was estimated to be approximately 9,895.
