A gift from Mr. Claude J. "Pappy" Hayden provided funds to construct this building in 1979. It was originally called the Horticultural Service Center but after renovation in 1992, it was renamed in honor of its original donor. Mr. Hayden, a Clemson University alumnus, received a B.S. degree in Horticulture in 1912.

After holding faculty positions at Clemson and two other universities, he moved on to a career as co-owner of the Athens Nursery Company in Athens, Alabama. The business prospered, and he faithfully supported the Department of Horticulture and the Horticulture Gardens, now the South Carolina Botanical Garden.
