There are many reasons why Clover is a great place to call home. The Clover School District is the second fastest growing district in the State. The community continues to support education and the District’s goals of providing state-of-the-art facilities, maintaining student-teacher ratios, and continuing to provide an excellent education to all. Further, Clover is the home of champions! Clover athletics and special activities such as band and choraliers continue to bring home regional and state championships.
Winthrop University and York Technical College are also located within easy driving distance. These institutions provide quality higher education opportunities for the area. Evenings and weekends are spent enjoying a variety of youth and adult recreation at Clover schools or through the Parks and Recreation Department. Kings Mountain State is a 10 minute drive and offers trails, camping, horseback riding and more. Crowder's Mountain State Park is about 15 miles away in Kings Mountain and offers a number of hiking trails. If you want to get out of town, you can be at the Atlantic Ocean in less than 4 hours or in the Blue Ridge Mountains in about 2 hours.
There are several major community events offered each year including a St. Patrick’s Day Festival in March, Feis Cholbhair – Scots-Irish Festival in June, and the Fall Festival and Auto Show in September. However, it’s the smaller events that keep Clover’s citizens involved and connected. Clover Baptist Church’s Living Nativity, Optimist Club BBQ sales, and Clover YMCA Fun Runs, Spring Choralier Concert, library programs and many more similar events define Clover’s culture and small-town ideals.
Clover also has the School District Auditorium. Since opening in 1994, the 1500-seat facility has hosted a wide variety of activities including theater, concerts, dance recitals, civic and church events. The auditorium also sponsors an annual performing arts series, which features comedy, dance, drama and musical performances.
