Herring Hooks Schoolhouse

The Herring Hooks Schoolhouse, the most recent addition to the Village, was dedicated on April 13, 2013. It is a replica of the original 1881 Herring Hooks one room schoolhouse. The original building was located on the east side of US 27, north of SR 50 near Jack's Lake. The building first served as Herring Hooks' Hunting Lodge, until it was appropriated for use as a schoolhouse. Mrs. Thomas J. Hooks was the teacher at Clermont's first school.

This project was made possible by donations and volunteers.
