The Clark Stone House, constructed around 1801 by
James Clark (1765-1852), is one of the oldest standing
stone houses in Ohio. Clark, who served as a drummer in the Battle of Yorktown (1781), came with his
family to Anderson Township in 1797 and bought this
land along Clough Creek. Clark was a mathematician,
taught school, ran a distillery, operated an orchard
nursery and served as a justice of the peace, a judge,
and a state legislator. The two-story dressed lime
stone house was sold to the Leuser family in 1864,
was acquired by the related Messmer family in 1923,
and sold to Anderson Township in 1995.
