Calvit's plantation later became the Herndon sugar plantation, owned by John H. Herndon, who married Calvit's only daughter.After the American Civil War, Joseph Pegan, Soloman J. Clute, and several relatives including George and John Clute, founded a community near the plantation site. In 1881, the name Clute was adopted when both plantations were bought by Solomon J. Clute. George was described as, "a little Yankee from New York with a long, white beard." The other founders of Clute have also been described as northernors. The Clutes acquired additional land from Herndon, who put it up for auction in the 1870s.In the build up to your vacation in Clute, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our United States day trip planning app.
