Claymont Court and the surrounding property dates back to the time of George Washington and the founding of this country. George Washington's brother, John Augustine, built his home here in the 1700s. In 1811, John's grandson, Bushrod Corbin, built the current Claymont Court Mansion.
Throughout the years the property has been owned by architects, colonels, industrialists, and now, the Claymont Society for Continuous Education. We hope that you will join us in exploring the property and finding the same peace and tranquility that the Washington family did. Please read below for a few of the beautiful highlights of our property.
