At the time of its listing in the registers, the Scott-Clarke House was one of only two freestanding Greek Revival houses remaining in downtown Richmond (along with the neighboring Barret House).  The Scott-Clarke House was constructed in 1841 on a quarter-square that had once been part of the garden of “Moldavia,” a home built by David Meade Randolph in 1800.  The house, located on Fifth Street, which became quite fashionable in the 1840’s, was distinguished by its rare two-tiered portico on the garden side. The house lost its landmark status in 1986 after the removal of the portico and most of the original interior in a remodeling by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.  The Scott-Clarke House does contribute to the listed Fifth and Main Downtown Historic District.
