The Claymont property, which totals about 300 acres, is home to the historic Claymont Mansion. The mansion, which was built in 1820 by George Washington's grand-nephew Bushrod Washington, is the largest of the Washington family homes and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The property is owned and managed by the Claymont Society for Continuous Education and is used to host seminars and retreats for the public. The property has recently been entered into a conservation easement that ensures it will be protected from development.
