Step back into the 19th century and for a little while become a part of the gracious Victorian Era and discover the C.H. Moore Homestead.

The Mansion
The Mansion Construction was started on the C. H. Moore Homestead by John and Minerva Moore Bishop. Mr. Bishop was a prosperous grain and lumber dealer in Clinton. Work on the C. H. Moore Homestead was completed in 1867 after the Civil War had ended and life took on a more normal pattern. Soon after this, the Bishops lost their only child. After Minerva Bishop's death in the early 1880's, Mr. Bishop sold the house to his brother-in-law, Clifton H. Moore.
