History

Clover was founded in the late 19th century, in the vicinity of a settlement called New Centre that had dispersed around the end of the Civil War. The village of Clover began as a railway stop midway between York, South Carolina, and Gastonia, North Carolina. According to lore, the overflow of water from the railway's water tank fertilized a patch of clover, and the stop was called "the clover patch." Clover became the home of several cotton mills shortly after its founding, many of which operated until after World War II.
