Clarksburg is a quaint village in the Town of the Blue Mountains located in the Beaver Valley just south of Thornbury on Grey Rd 13. The Beaver River cascades through a series of picturesque rapids from Clendenan Dam through the village and northward to Georgian Bay. Clarksburg is a bustling little village with interesting places to visit and shop such as the old fashioned hardware store with its well worn wooden floors and a hand cranked cash register, the honey store that is shaped like a bee hive and Clarksburgers, the funky vintage clothing store.
Clarksburg, or "Artsburg" as many call it, has now become the art centre of the region with the opening of art galleries and studios. The Marsh Street Centre is a cultural hotspot in The Blue Mountains, hosting a blend of theatre, music, art shows and even opera on occasion. The gallery windows are always changing and give new meaning to the phrase "paint the town." Clarksburg is also home to some gorgeous Victorian houses, beautiful nature trails located near Clendenan Dam and many apple farms.
