Clairvaux was purchased in 1967 to increase accommodation for wards of the state and boys with disabilities (referred to at the time as 'intellectually handicapped'). Accommodation at the existing state institutions at Brush Farm, Mittagong Farm Home and Werrington Park was becoming strained. The home was opened in 1969 with 24 boys. There was a special school on the site, operated by the Education Department.
Clairvaux was closed down in the 1990s and in 2014 serves as accommodation for a range of community-based organisations.
