Our Mission

We are a not-for-profit organization created to support the work of New York State in conserving the living legacy of Clermont State Historic Site. We engage our varied users to explore the multifaceted assets of the site by broadening use, access, and enjoyment.

The importance of being a member.

The Friends of Clermont continues to grow and support Clermont State Historic Site with the help of our members. We have developed the site’s growing research library, restored three formal gardens, restored the circa 1910 Children’s Playhouse, mounted two important loan exhibitions, and encouraged the donation of nearly 8,000 historical objects to Clermont’s collections. The Friends also supports educational programming for local youth. Our largest program, Harvesting History, connects over 2,000 with our site.
