Hattie Butner Stagecoach

This stagecoach was purchased by Edwin T. Clemmons in 1872 for his stagecoach line based in the Clemmons area of Forsyth County. Named “Hattie Butner” after Clemmons’s wife, this stagecoach was the last and largest of several coaches purchased by Clemmons from the Abbot, Downing & Co. of Concord, New Hampshire. Edwin Clemmons was the owner and proprietor of several stage lines based in the Clemmons area and running to Salem, High Point, Raleigh, Asheville, and Wytheville, Virginia. Clemmons died in 1886 and his widow donated the stagecoach to the Wachovia Historical Society in about 1890. In 1994 it was placed on view in the Clemmons Village Hall by the Clemmons Historical Society. This photograph shows the stagecoach on a trailor in the Old Salem visitor center with museum staff.
