The Henry Clay Mills House was a historic house in Van Buren, Arkansas. This modest frame house was built in 1892 by Henry Clay Mills, an African-American former slave turned businessman.
Mills was born into slavery on June 5, 1847 in Lauderdale County, Alabama, and after the US Civil War worked for many years as a laborer on a plantation near Mulberry, Arkansas.
He eventually developed a moving and shipping business in Van Buren, typifying advancement of African-Americans of the period from agricultural to non-agricultural economic opportunities.
The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
It has apparently been demolished, and was delisted on January 26, 2018.
