History

"Clermont" was originally one of the oldest of the great estates of the mid-Hudson valley.

The Clermont Manor was established in 1728, in what is now the Town of Clermont. The manor was originally part of the Livingston Manor; Clermont was a section in the southwest corner that was bequeathed to Robert Livingston, a younger son. His descendants would come to own more than in the Catskill Mountains and more than in Dutchess County.

Clermont marked the northernmost penetration by British troops up the Hudson River during the American Revolution; Livingston’s home was burned because of his prominent role in the Revolution. It was rebuilt between 1779 and 1782. The house is now a historic New York State Historic Site and a United States National Historic Landmark.

In 1788, Clermont Manor was organized as the Town of Clermont.

Clermont was the port of registry of Robert Fulton's first steamboat, co-owned by Livingston, which was called the "North River". Today it is known as the "Clermont." The ruins of its dock can still be found at the historic site.

The estate, and later the town, was home to seven generations of the Livingston family until 1962.
