WaldomoreFor more than forty years, the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library's home was an elegant antebellum mansion called Waldomore. The house was built in 1842 by local businessman Waldo P. Goff and his wife, Harriet Moore, from which it derived the name "Waldomore."

In 1931, the house was gifted to the city of Clarksburg by May Goff Lowndes to be used as a library and museum. Over the years, the library's collection and services outgrew the capacity of the building. In 1975, a new structure was built beside Waldomore to house the library's main collection.

Today, Waldomore remains a part of the library campus. The ground floor offers a large public meeting space alongside rooms that display period furnishings. The second floor houses the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library's local history, genealogy, and special collections.
