1. Clay-Lewis-Irvine House Marker
Inscription.  Built by Henry M. Clay, local mill owner, in the Federal style. Nicholas Meriwether Lewis purchased the home in 1830 and added the Greek Revival front portico and a parlor mantle and trim from the Thomas Day workshop. The large boxwoods were part of a formal 19th century garden. Captain James Irvine was a later owner. The house was saved from ruin by Carolyn Moore Thomas in the 1970s.
 
Erected by The Milton Preservation and Beautification Society.
