Discover the Legacy
The Avera-Clarke House was built in 1890 by Judge Thomas Clarke, a civil war veteran who fought in the Battle for Atlanta. After the Civil War ended, he studied law in Georgia, came to Monticello in the late 1800’s to open a law practice, was a signor on the Second Florida Constitution, and founded the Farmers and Merchants Bank.
