Did you know?

Did you know that the School Board once owned Plumb Grove? It was built around 1807 on land granted in a 1752 patent to Nathaniel Nesbitt.

The property belonged to generations of the Nesbitts until it was sold to Frederick Warner in 1892.

It remained with Warner's heirs until sold to the county board in 1967.

It was given back to the residents of Clear Spring after a long fight by the Clear Spring District Historical Association.
