2011-A8-CR, at Interpretive Forum I (Architectural History): “Clermont: An Evolved ‘Virginia’ House”

Pogue provides a description of the owner’s house at Clermont through its successive construction phases from 1755-56 through 1971, places it in the context of other Chesapeake houses, noting that its remarkably high level of preservation and precise chronological data allows Clermont to serve as a class room for the study of Virginia architecture over more than 200 years, and a case study for the trajectory of the region’s social development.  14 pages
