Clermont is a town teaming with history. It is home to the historic Union Sunday School which hosts concerts performed on the 100+ year old Kimball pipe organ. Montauk Mansion, built in 1874 by William Larrabee, who also happened to be governor from 1886-1890, is one of Iowa's most impressive homes. The State Historical Society of Iowa purchased this home. It is open for tours on a regular basis.
