Claremont House

Claremont House, c1830 listed by National Trust, the Tasmanian Heritage Council and listed on the Register of National Estates.

For the first century of its life, Claremont House was owned by wealthy and powerful merchants, businessmen, politicians, a Captain in the English Army and an Australian Test Cricket Captain. Claremont House was a grand mansion, located on top of a hill looking down on its surrounding 734 acres of land.

In 1940, as part of a compulsory acquisition by the government, the property passed into the hands of the Red Cross Society and became known as the Lady Clark Convalescent Hospital for returned servicemen. Following World War II, the “grand old Lady Clark ”became a rehabilitation centre for thousands of servicemen and later the general community after it was acquired by the Royal Hobart Hospital. Adult education occupied the property in later years, when increasing maintenance costs caused relinquish of the building and a demolition order was passed to facilitate sale into private ownership. Claremont House had been condemned and was to become another historic building lost forever.
