The Clover Bend community in southeast Lawrence County was the site of a successful attempt to combat the socioeconomic problems that plagued the Great Depression era. When consolidation closed the Clover Bend school district in 1983, the Clover Bend Historic Preservation Association was formed to preserve the history of the area. The historic district consists of ten buildings, including five from Clover Bend High School, that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Shown here is the school’s gymnasium.
