Come to the Historic Village at 490 West Avenue and walk through Clermont's history with the South Lake County Historical Society. The Village is home to a replica of Clermont's first school were students sat at desks very similar to the ones shown above. Outside would not be complete without the replica outhouse.

Historic Village School House The original school was housed in the former hunting lodge of Herring Hooks (who still has many descendants in the area). The Historic Village replica was constructed using old photographs of that building.

The Historic Village is open every Friday from 1:00 to 3:00 PM and every Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. Tours of the Schoolhouse and all the other structures are free but donations are requested.

If you are interested in history in general or the history of South Lake County in particular, you can contact the Historical Society by going to our website at www.clermontvillage.org; or by calling Dodie King, Historic Village manager, at 352-593-8496.

Our next monthly meeting is scheduled for 7:00 PM on Monday, September 12th in the Train Depot in the Historic Village.
