Also known as Clairemont, this beautiful Beaux-Arts house was built by Horace Trumbauer, from 1917-1919, for department store owner Morris L. Clothier.  The estate originally rested on 161 acres.  During the 1950s, the property was subdivided and rezoned for institutional use. In 1959 it became the site of the Northeastern Christian Junior College. Currently, it houses the Foundation for Islamic Education.
