A TASTE OF THE CLARK HOUSE
Although the house and contents were owned by a Clinton County resident, there were few pieces that were
made in the county or concern the county.  Bob Cheeseman, the Chazy Town Historian, pointed out the spool
furniture that was made in Sciota.  These were the spool beds and occasional tables from the upstairs
bedroom.  Some books, journals and scrapbooks were also found. CCHA asked that the judge be petitioned to
have the Clinton County materials left in Clinton County. After consultation, the petition was granted. Without
CCHA's intervention, all Clinton County items would have gone into the aution to be sold.
