Cloverland is an unincorporated community in Posey Township, Clay County, Indiana. It is part of the Terre Haute Metropolitan Statistical Area.


Cloverland is located at 39°30′05″N 87°13′53″W / 39.50139°N 87.23139°W / 39.50139; -87.23139, about six miles west of the county seat, Brazil, and less than one mile east of the Vigo-Clay line. Cloverland is within the humid continental climate zone. The terrain is gently rolling and includes a small brook.


The town was platted in 1834 as a speculative venture by Terre Haute doctor Charles Modesitt. The town grew steadily with several general stores, a carpentry shop, and several other ventures. With the construction of the railroad, business activity shifted to nearby Brazil, and the town's population dwindled. A post office was established at Cloverland in 1850, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1920. Today, a church, a commercial building, and cluster of houses are all that remain.
