History

Clearwater was named by the town's first postmaster, J. C. Nations, for Clearwater, Florida, where his cousin lived. The town on the west coast of Florida, near Tampa, is now known as Clearwater Harbor.

A post office was established at Clearwater in 1929, and remained in operation until 1981.
