Clarkville

(4/5 based on a few reviews for 1 attraction)
Clarkville is a small rural town in the Waimakariri District, New Zealand. As of the 2013 New Zealand Census, Clarkville has a population of 1137.HistoryClarkville was originally known as Kaiapoi Island, because it was in between two equally large branches of the Waimakariri River. This led to the area being flooded often by the unpredictable Waimakariri River. In the 1860s, farmers cut a new course for the river and choked the north branch, rendering it just a stream, known today as Silverstream, of which the Silverstream Estate (where Mitre 10 Dream Home 2013 was located) was named after. In 1880, the name was changed to Clarkville, in honour of Joseph Clark, who donated land for the local school.
In 1919, The Clarkville Hall Association, Incorporated, erected a community hall. It is called the Clarkville Peace Hall, and still stands today, along with an enlargement in 1970. The original constitution of the Association (valid until 2011) can be found here.EducationClarkville School is Clarkville's only school, and was established in 1874. It is a decile 9 state co-educational full primary, with students
