Clausel Hill

Clausel Hill Cemetery was started in the early 1800's, several acres owned by Mr. Bill Arnold. Clausel Hill bottom and it's running waters has much history.
In 1920 one little girl stepped on an unsecured plank and fell in but was saved by a classmate.
In 1918 Bro. John Hendrix moved his boat crews up the channel past the Old Stanley Wash Hole to channel to the Tennessee River.
In 1912 a fire destroyed Old Snowdown School which was located in the northwest corner of land belonging to Bro. Blund Woodruff.
This divided the students to Jacinto, Odum Hill and part of Old Snowdown, until they built another school where Snowdown Church now stands. School was taught there until the consolidation of 1936.
Clausel Hill School had one ball team that was never defeated.
