The Clarke-Palmore House, also known as Clarke Home, was built as a brick farmhouse in 1819 and expanded in 1855. Its first floor level, built in 1819, is described as being American bond brickwork of 3 to 5 stretcher courses between each header course. Its upper level, built in 1855, is of American bond with 6 to 7 stretcher courses between each header course.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1][3]

The house and pumphouse on its property are "a reminder of Henrico County's agricultural past."[3]
