The Clermont Historic Village Museum is a collection of restored buildings, artifacts, and furnishings from Florida’s historical past that date from the late 1800’s to the 1920’s. The Townsend House was built by the first African American to settle in Clermont and was also the home of the town midwife. The Kern House was built by Alexander Kern and his family, who settled in Clermont after moving down from New Jersey in the mid-1800’s. He built and operated the first water system in Clermont. The other buildings on the tour are the Train Depot, the Cooper Library, and the Quonset Hut. The Village is in a beautiful setting right on the Lake Minneola Scenic Trail. Admission is free, but a donation of $2 is suggested.
