City Directories and History: This once fine old home built on a high knoll overlooking the Broad River was the home of the Clowney family. The images of the historic home were taken in 1964 after it had been abandoned by the family and was in poor condition. Notice the bardge boards running down the steep roof edges of the home which help date it to the Gothic Revival period, circa 1850’s.
The family stated the house had once belonged to William James Clowney and later his daughter Iva Clowney.
