The Clemmons Historical Society presented the Village of Clemmons with
an Historical Marker on December 29, 2002 in front of the Village Hall. It commemorates the Abbot-Downing Stagecoach
- the Hattie Butner - which is the centerpiece of the Village Hall.
The marker was produced by the Sewah Studios in Ohio and the cost of $1700 was paid for with funds from
the Historical Society.
The interior of the Abbot-Downing Coach owned by the Village of Clemmons is shown below. For further
information on this fantastic Abbot-Downing Coach go to Discovering Concord Coaches or Abbot-Downing Coaches You Can Visit.
The Village was celebrating their 200th Anniversary and this was the culmination of a yearlong celebration.
