It's been quite a journey from a forested wilderness to a modern suburban town. Perhaps what makes Clarence, NY so special is the unique way it has kept pace with the times without losing sight of the past.
That's pretty obvious to the thousands of visitors who come here every year...folks who browse the towns many antique shops in search of a "treasure". Clarence is, after all, known far and wide as the "antique capital" of the Eastern United States.
The Town of Clarence has managed to maintain more than just artifacts from the past. Indeed, many of its historic sites and buildings have been preserved as well.
It's more than the historic fabric of Clarence that makes it one of the fastest growing towns in the Buffalo, NY area. It's also the town's natural beauty, the character of its neighborhoods, the quality of its schools and the conveniences provided by its thriving business community that draw so many to live and work here.
This is a town that recognizes both its special places and its people. It is a wonderful community to explore and tour. Clarence is easily accessible from both Buffalo and Rochester. We invite you to visit, too, and then tell others about this special place.
