The Clermont Historic Village is a unique partnership between the City of Clermont and the Clermont Historical Society. The City owns and maintains the beautiful grounds and the buildings. The Historical Society owns all the furnishings and artifacts in the buildings, is responsible for maintaining the interiors and for making the Village available to the public.
This is done by opening it every Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 PM, by arranging group and individual tours during non-scheduled hours upon request, and by hosting events highlighting the history of the Clermont community. Historical Society volunteers enjoy meeting and talking to visitors to the Historic Village who come not only from Florida and all over the United States but from all around the world, about the area’s rich history and the people who were a part of it.
As one board member put it, “If you don’t look back, you’ve got nowhere to look forward.” Founded in 1998 as the South Lake County Historical Society, the Society is a 501-c-3 organization.
