Waddington Marketplace & Studios at Clark House is a local gem where you can find unique, handmade and repurposed items created by local artisans. At the heart of the marketplace is the effort to transform the Village of Waddington into a hub for arts and events. The Clark House stands as the historic centerpiece of Main Street, a beautiful and one-of-a-kind shop, and the perfect space for bringing together creative minds.
Our curated retail collection provides a great selection of diverse products and pieces, whether you're on a quest to find the perfect gift or just stopping in for a spontaneous browse.
Our goal is connecting the consumer with the artists. North Country artists tend to be geographically dispersed in home-based studios, which can be isolating for the artist and a deterrent for potential patrons. The bright, open second floor of the Clark House will soon be open as rental studio space for a collective of artisans. We hope to provide space for creativity to blossom - a space for creatives to work independently OR gather together and share ideas, teach, and sell their craft. There is growing public excitement about the Clark House becoming the focal point for northern New York’s artist community.
Clark House Preservation, Inc.
The Clark House was constructed in the 1800’s, a time when Waddington was the industrial hub of St. Lawrence County - boasting numerous mills, shops, restaurants, and taverns. The Clark House served as one of Waddington’s stage coach stops, a popular destination for residents, travelers, and businessmen. As the structural and social anchor of downtown, The Clark house was a place where people stayed, dined, and socialized with their neighbors and visitors. Our goal is to return The Clark House to its roots as the anchor of Main Street’s commercial and creative hub.
