What exactly is Clermont’s Historic Village? Is it a collection of old buildings that have a place in Clermont’s history? Is it some replicas of old buildings that have a place in Clermont’s history? Is it a museum housing items of historical significance to Clermont’s & our nation’s history? Is it dedicated volunteers who generously give of their time and talents to make the Village an interesting and enjoyable place to visit? The answer to all these questions is a resounding YES!
To find out exactly what the Village looks like and how one relatively small location can be all these things, you will just have to come by and take a tour. The Village is located at 490 West Ave. on the shores of beautiful Lake Minneola, not far from downtown Clermont. Operating hours are Fridays from 1:00 to 3:00 PM and every Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. The Village is free and open to the public but a donation of $2.00 per person is appreciated. To arrange a private, group tour at a time when the Village is not regularly scheduled to be open, contact the Village manager, Roxanne Brown, at 352-593-8496.
To find out more about the Village or the South Lake County Historical Society, visit our web site at Clermontvillage.org or attend one of our regularly scheduled meetings held on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 PM in the Depot at the Village. Our next meeting will be on Monday, October 10th. Hope to see you there!
