About Claussen Bakery
Our office moved into the former Claussen Bakery Building on Augusta Street in 2015. Claussen’s Bakery was a family-owned business, built in Greenville’s West End in 1930. This two-story trapezoidal shaped industrial building was the fourth bakery created by J.C.H Claussen and family. By choosing to reuse the original structure, we were able to preserve the historic integrity and unique character of the 1930s industrial space, while giving the building a fresh, contemporary upgrade, including a complete modernization of the building’s systems. Initially, this Claussen’s location employed forty workers who produced 45,000 loaves of bread a day. Though changing hands several times, the bakery contributed to the industrial and commercial success of Greenville’s west side for decades.
On January 13, 2017, the Greenville Branch of the NAACP and the Greater Sullivan Neighborhood Association unveiled a Martin Luther King, Jr. Historical Commemorative Marker just outside the former bakery building at 400 Augusta Street. This is such an important piece of history for a local building, and we are proud to be a part of the event and dedication.
