!6 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, AUGUST 1O, 1978 Claremont, Another Historic Landmark Claremont, located just east of Halltown, has been listed as a Jefferson County Historic Landmark. The photograph shows the original portion. It stands on land owned by Thomas Beall (1748-1814) of BeUair and Georgetown. The house is mentioned as early as 1827. It is uncertain whether it was built by Thomas Beall or by his grandson, Colin Peter, who lived there. It was sold in 1841. The interior woodwork is characteristic of the early 1800's and the late 1700's. Door and window frames, mantels, chair rails and staircase are intact. The original floor has been sanded. A modern one story living area has been added. There is a smaller three level stone house at the rear. Claremont now is the home of Mrs. William Trail, whose father, Nathaniel Gray, bought the property in 1925. ........... * ......
