Homes by Benny Clark has grown from its humble beginnings forty years ago with $500 and a pick-up truck. Benny Clark, President of Homes by Benny Clark, remembers his first job. “We took an old tobacco barn and converted it into a custom home. It was an incredible learning experience, but we did it and today it is still a great home”.
The company has faced two monumental challenges in the last few years. One challenge we faced was developing Sycamore Square. Sycamore Square is a 4 Million dollar condo community in a blighted area of downtown Owensboro. The dream started with the purchase of many downtown parcels of property in substantial depreciation. The process was slow in the beginning. But the vision of what could be developed in that area is now a reality of a maintenance free lifestyle and an excellent tax base for the city of Owensboro. Sycamore Square serves as a beacon for those who want or dream of improving the quality of life in downtown Owensboro.
We continue to look for opportunities and areas of development in downtown Owensboro. Our second challenge was entering a new golf course community developed by a local entrepreneur, The Summit. Again, being able to see the vision of what could be, spurred us on. Raw farmland was soon to be developed into charming lakes and fairways which were to be the backdrop for future home sites. Community comments, “too far out”, “it’ll never make it”, “no new schools”, “no sewer” and rural two-lane roads were obstacles destined to be overcome. Six years later approximately $20 million dollars worth of housing is lived in by people transferring to the Owensboro community. What an asset the Summit has become to our community and to this day still continues to grow.
