Tillman Hall – Clemson, South Carolina

Clemson University was founded in the late 1800s by Thomas Clemson. Born in Philadelphia, Clemson was a champion of agricultural affairs and farming. He moved to South Carolina when he married Anna Calhoun, daughter of South Carolina’s famous statesman, John Calhoun.

These colorful photos highlight the tall tower of Tillman Hall, which serves as a sort of “town clock” for both Clemson University and the town that surrounds it.
SCIWAY contributor Gary Dubose notes that “Tillman Hall, built in the 1890s, is the classic symbol of Clemson University. The building is named for Ben Tillman, the governor of South Carolina who (along with Thomas Clemson) was instrumental in the founding of what was then Clemson College.”

Dubose adds, “The interior of the building has been rebuilt a couple of times. The first was after it was gutted by a fire only a few years after being constructed. The second time was in the 1980s when the building was extensively renovated.”
DuBose, who hails from Seneca, is a Clemson alum and chemistry teacher at nearby Daniel High. Since his wife works at the university, he visits the campus a good bit and says it is one of his favorite places to walk and take photos.
