Inscription.  In the Moore mansion, which stood on this site, in 1822, Clement Clarke Moore, (1779-1863), penned the immortal poem, “A Visit from Saint Nicholas”, (T’was the night before Christmas), as a gift for his children.

Scholar and developer of modern Chelsea, he gave the land for St. Peter’s Church and the General Theological Seminary, where he was professor of Greek and Hebrew.
