Dr. James S. Hall

It’s HDC’s #ThrowbackThursday! Preservation of our historic buildings is a foundational mission of Historic Downtown Clinton, as well as telling the stories of these buildings and the people who shaped this city.

You’ve probably walked by this downtown building many times, currently home to a dental office. Beloved Clinton physician Dr. James S. Hall began the practice of medicine around 1920 and had this office constructed in 1939. Dr. Hall was civic-minded, serving on numerous boards, including a 25 year stint as chairman of the Clinton City School board. An avid bottle collector, Dr. Hall designed a bottle commemorating the construction of Norris Dam in 1936. Even while sick with cancer himself, Dr. Hall would go into the office almost every day. He passed away in 1967. He made his home on Eagle Bend Road with his wife Deane, a charter member of Timely Topics and the founder of the Anderson County Council of Parents and Teachers Association.

The next time you pass by this building, we hope you’ll be inspired to honor the past by serving your community today!
