Clover Lick Post Office
1875 – 1971
The first Post Office at Clover Lick was in the home of Dr. John Ligon, and the mail was carried from Edray twice a week on horseback. With the coming of the railroad in 1901, the office was moved to its present location.
The name “Clover Lick” was taken from Clover Lick Farm, a large acreage, now divided into several farms, owned by Burns, Gardners, Coyners, Hankins and Browns. Clover Lick Farm was named for the first white clover found west of the mountains and for the salt licks where the deer, in large numbers, came for salt.
Clover Lick Post Office is a landmark we regret losing.
The Postmasters and Officer in charge were as follows:
Dr. John Ligon, Postmaster, 1875-1911.
J. J. Coyner, Acting Postmaster, 1911- 1913.
J. J. Coyner, Postmaster, 1913 – 1924.
L. N. Coyner, Postmaster 1950 – 1970.
Juanita S. Dilley, Officer in Charge, 1970 – 1971.
