New History Signs installed at Clemson University

New signs are being installed at 11 historic buildings on the campus of Clemson University. This recommendation comes from a history task force commissioned by the Board of Trustees in 2016 to share the university’s history. The grounds of each facility on the National Register of Historic Buildings now feature a nine-foot, bronze-colored sign that tells the story of its origin, name and significance to university development, according to the Clemson University Media Relations Department. Also being installed this semester are granite markers to enhance the campus commemoration of the historic enrollment of Harvey B. Gantt in 1965, who was the first African-American student to enroll at Clemson University. To learn more, visit
