Also known as Clairemont, this 161-acre estate was developed in 1917 for department store owner Morris L. Clothier. This 1949 image shows the entrance to the estate from Montgomery Avenue. 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.
