White Hall Historic Site is a 45 room mansion resting on 14 acres and located in Richmond, Kentucky. White Hall, originally named Clermont, was built in 1799 by Green Clay. Green Clay was a businessman who served in both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. He was one of the wealthiest landowners, as well as, one of the largest slaveholders in the state of Kentucky. The original home was 7 rooms and roughly 3,000 square feet. After his death, his son, Cassius Clay, inherited the home. Cassius Clay was a writer and a politician who was against slavery. Through his endeavors fighting for emancipation, he met and campaigned for Abraham Lincoln. After Lincoln became president, he appointed Cassius Clay as Minister to Russia. It was during his time overseas that his wife, Mary Jane Warfield Clay, built onto the home creating the 45 room, 10,000+ square feet home that stands today.
