This year, Doors Open invites you to experience the rich history of Clarkson Village.
Located on the southwestern edge of Mississauga along Lakeshore Road, Clarkson Village is considered by many as the first settled area of Mississauga. The emerging community unofficially became known as Clarkson’s Corners after early settler Warren Clarkson opened a general store and post office on his property. With a few houses and shops along Clarkson Road, a railway station, a school, and a church, Clarkson was home to fewer than 100 people in its early days and was recognized as the Strawberry Capital of Ontario.
Learn more about this vibrant community as it opens its doors to historical treasures and parks with walking tours and exclusive access to local corporations and places of worship. Enjoy live music at Clarkson Live and join in on the 25th anniversary celebration of Benares Historic House – one of two museums located in Clarkson Village. Activities include guided museum tours, music by Rob Tardik, tree planting for One Million Trees Mississauga and archaeological activities.
