Clemson University Master Plan Maps

Clemson was founded in the late 1800s for agriculture and the mechanical arts on 1,400-acres of donated land at the original Fort Hill Plantation, a monument to the Antebellum South. The distinctive nineteenth-century character and design of the buildings continue to define the historic core of the campus, although modernist structures were added throughout the 1960s. In addition to significant architectural resources, the 17,000-acre Clemson Experimental Forest (a Works Project Administration conservation project still managed by the university) surrounds the campus. With Getty grant support, Clemson is undertaking an inventory of the campus's historic resources in order to assess eligibility for the National Register, as well as reviewing past conditions assessments and creating treatment guidelines for both existing buildings and new construction that will lead to a new Preservation Master Plan.

Clemson University received a Getty grant in 2007 for $160,000 to support campus heritage planning.
