Claremont, Jamaica

The district of Claremont was first called "Finger Post" until it was renamed in honour of the first house built there, "Clermont House". The countryside around the town has for centuries been home to the wealthy landed gentry, and still today is dotted with estate houses. The wealth associated with the area is seen in the architecture and plan of the town; the shops of Claremont High Street exhibit fine architectural detail and finishing.
