Downtown Clayton has a nice section of historic commercial storefronts, and since it caters to tourists, it’s a fun town to walk around.
Eclectic businesses have added a lot of color, such as Zeppelin’s Pub & Grill on Main Street.
The large brick building seen here was built in 2003 but a great effort was made to construct something with a historical influence. It’s really impressive, as are the mountain views in nearly any direction from downtown Clayton.
Built by the Martin chain in the early 1950s, the interesting architecture of this theatre has been a central feature of downtown Thomson ever since. It became a twin theatre about 30 years ago and is open as a first-run venue today. The blocks above the marquee once read MARTIN. This central part of the historic downtown, on Main Street (busy US Highway 78) is the most visually interesting to me.
