"A prosperous and growing incorporated village located nearly in the center of a rich plateau. Clyde has several hardwood lumber mills and flouring mills, a postoffice from which a rural mail route runs to Crabtree, and general business houses. From here the Railway runs directly East through the valley of the Pigeon River, which it crosses just before reaching Canton, N.C. "
The 1916 Pictorial Story of Haywood County reported that,
"At present Clyde has three hundred inhabitants, three churches, one high school, nine stores, one bank, all of which seem to be prospering. There are eight hotels and boarding houses to take care of the transient, and summer guests and new buildings going up attest the prosperity of Clyde."
