In the mid-18th century, people began settling in the Clemmons area. In 1802, these roots of settlement took hold with the arrival of Peter Clemmons, a farmer from Delaware. Also a merchant, Clemmons built a home, still standing today, and tavern that catered to travelers. The community continued to grow and became known as Clemmonstown around 1816, making it one of the oldest established communities in the Triad area. Now known simply as Clemmons, it has firmly established a prominent place among Winston-Salem and the surrounding communities. It is the home of Tanglewood Park, one of the finest parks and outdoor recreational areas in the state. From its humble beginnings, Clemmons continues to attract an ever-growing population with its rural, small-town way of life.
