How Clemson Downs was formed and operates:
Clemson Downs (Clemson Area Retirement Center) is owned and operated by CARC, Inc., a corporation registered with the South Carolina Secretary of State over 40 years ago by Mr. Walter C. Dixon. The CARC, Inc. Board of Directors, elected by the stockholders of the corporation, are responsible for managing the financial affairs of the corporation and for the oversight of all matters in regard to the fulfilling of service obligations to occupants.
