      Tom and Dave,

      Tom is right in that nothing remains of the Clipp farmstead and in that it was a tenement house. IIRC the site of the house's location is the small slightly rectangular raised area just off the Roulette Lane on the left approximately half-way between the Sunken Road and the Roulette House itself.
