In 1887 the town of Clover was granted a charter by the General Assembly, its city limits to extend "one - half mile in every direction from the railroad depot." Clover Post Office had been established in 1874 with Zimri Carroll as postmaster. Six years later the Chester and Lenoir Railroad had completed its line here. The town´s first textile mill, organized by Captain
W. Beatty Smith, was chartered in 1890.
