Also known as Clairemont, this 161-acre estate was developed in 1917 for department store owner Morris L. Clothier.  The structure in this 1949 image appears to be a part of the stables complex, which is no longer standing.  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.
