The Thomas Clark House is one of Belmont’s best-preserved examples of 18th-century Georgian architecture, built in 1760, it has a long and colorful history. It was the home of Belmont’s oldest resident and first official voter when the town was incorporated in 1859. Legend holds that the original builder, Thomas Clark, watched the beginning of the American Revolution in 1775 from a hill behind the house; local lore maintains that later it was a stop on the Underground Railroad.
