It was initially home to John Clark, who served as the 20th Governor of Delaware. Clark was a politician and a member of the Federalist Party and the Presbyterian Church. It was common during that time for all Presbyterians to be Democrat-Republican, but Clark was unusually part of the Federalist Party and beat Manaen Bull, the other Federalist candidate for the position of the state’s Governor from 1817 until 1820. Clark’s historic home was used as an office for the correctional facility.
