White Hall State Historic Site was the home of Cassius Marcellus Clay, 19th century emancipationist, politician, newspaper publisher, Ambassador to Russia, and friend to Abraham Lincoln. Clay’s daughter, Laura Clay, lived at White Hall and was politically active for women’s suffrage and state’s rights. In 1920 she became the first woman nominated for President of the United States by a major political party. The restored Italianate mansion was built in 1798 and remodeled in the 1860s. General Green Clay built the original brick Georgian-style home called Clermont. Cassius M. Clay inherited the house upon his father’s passing. He and his wife Mary Jane Warfield Clay built the new addition that more than doubled the size of the house and added such modern amenities as indoor plumbing and central heating.White Hall State Historic Site is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
