Calhoun Road

Calhoun Road was the name applied to the mile or so of right-of-way between Clemson Agricultural College of South Carolina and the small community of Calhoun, the nearest stop on the Southern Railway's Washington-Atlanta main line to the campus. It would also be known as Six Mile Road, and was later renamed formally College Avenue.

In the original alignment, Sloan Street was the straight-through thoroughfare, obvious even today by the sight-lines to Bowman Field and the intersection with the Old Greenville Highway. The curving alignment of College Avenue is the result of the former carriage route to Calhoun and the Southern Railway depot superceding the original street plan.
