Area 51, a term borrowed from the ultra-secret aircraft test base located in the remote Nevada desert, is the nickname for the Village Green Townhomes in Clemson. The apartment complex is virtually invisible from adjacent roads with a single shaded access driveway, and its relative invisibilty undoubtedly accounts for the Area 51 appellation. The complex is listed on CAT Bus route maps as Area 51. A large "Area 51" is painted on the cinderblock retaining wall of the long-closed Zack's parking lot, adjacent to the access drive to the Village Green Townhomes.
