History & History Related Items

Clear Spring history:

1821 marked the founding of the town of Clear spring by Martin Myers. He liked the natural beauty of the area and particularly the nearby spring which he thought would bring growth and prosperity to a town there. The town was initially known as Myersville, but later changed to Clear Spring. When the railroad bypassed the town in the 1850's, there was a major decline as all the wagon traffic disappeared. Once the automobile was invented, traffic once again took advantage of the scenic road. In the 1960's, Interstate 70 also bypassed Clear spring reducing the traffic and people coming through. There are few businesses but families remain to carry on the small town feel to Clear Spring.

Clear Spring attractions:

Clear Spring is about three blocks long; most of the businesses are gone; and developers have purchased many of the beautiful farms that surround the town. But Clear Spring still cherishes its beautiful location and its generations of families and friends that care about each another and the functioning of their small-town government. Volunteerism, churches, service organizations, and clubs play dominant roles in the life of the town. Its tradition of offering warm hospitality to travelers survives—and that welcome extends to anyone who has a hankering to pull up stakes permanently and find friendly neighbors in the coziness of a small town by the mountains.
