 A focal point of downtown [[Union]], this historic home is one of the most intact Victorian dwellings along [[transportation in boone county|U.S. 42]].  The R.T. Clements House is a vernacular Italianate residence, it is distinguished by paired cornice brackets, placed in line with the narrow windows, and a broad, Folk Victorian porch. ​ A closer look reveals that the three-bay facade is not quite symmetrical:​ a visual illusion. ​ A former smokehouse is incorporated into the rear ell, and a back porch was enclosed in glass in the mid-20th century.  ​ A focal point of downtown [[Union]], this historic home is one of the most intact Victorian dwellings along [[transportation in boone county|U.S. 42]].  The R.T.
