Clover Site is an archeological site in Cabell County, West Virginia, USA. It is significant for its extraordinarily well-preserved remains of an Indian town dating to about 400 years ago. The site pertains to the Fort Ancient culture, who were the descendants of the cosmopolitan Hopewell trading societies and related to the other great urbanizing mound-buildiers of the Mississippian period.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1992.[2],[3]
