The British Crown and Mississauga First Nations consummated a land deal in 1805. Gradually more settlers arrived and smaller pieces of land were made available. One of these settlers, Warren Clarkson, opened the areas first general store in 1835 on what is now Clarkson Road North. In 1855, the Great Western Railway railway opened a service station behind Clarkson's store. The area became a hub of transportation, trade and commerce and would take on the name Clarkson's Corners.
By the 1850s Clarkson had become known for its outstanding fruit and vegetable farms especially their strawberries which were shipped by railway and earned Clarkson the title as the Strawberry Capital of Ontario. In the 1860s Clarkson's sons William and Henry opened a post office in the store in 1875, resulting in the area officially being recognized as Clarkson. In 1974 Clarkson Village was amalgamated with the City of Mississauga ushering in a new era for this community.
