About Waverley Place

Waverley Place was built as a one story Regency style cottage in 1847. Additions to the home in 1861 and 1880 have changed it to its present-day appearance as a two story Italianate styled house.

The Museum has been restored as a period home (1901-1930) reflecting the lifestyle of a wealthy merchant family. The nine rooms with late Victorian furnishings include a parlour, dining room, conservatory, master bedroom and a girl and boy bedroom.

Clarington History Gallery

Clarington History Gallery is a permanent exhibit at Waverley Place. This gallery comprises four rooms of archival photos and interactive exhibits that tell the story of the settlement and development of Clarington. Who were the first settlers in this area? What is Camp 30? Learn the answers to these questions and much more during your visit to the Clarington History Gallery.
