L. W. CLAPP HOUSE - 1847 Wellington Place

Built in 1887 by Lewis W. Clapp, businessman, civic leader, one time mayor, and developer of the City's park system. It was the first structure constructed in the area that became later known as "Clapp Compound." Designed in the Queen Anne style by architects Terry and Hayward, the three-story home features varied surfaces and multiple porches, Doric porch columns, a slate roof, boxed eaves, dentilled cornice trim and cornice brackets.

Extensive remodeling in 1907 included moving the main entrance of the house to its present corner and the addition of a massive wooden front door carved by Mr. Clapp.
