Clermont Civic Historic District is a national historic district located at Clermont in Columbia County, New York. The district includes one contributing building and one contributing site: the Clermont Town Hall and the Clermont Cemetery. Within the district boundaries, but listed separately are Clermont Academy and St. Luke's Church. The district unites the three buildings and cemetery.[2]

The Clermont Town Hall is a modest Queen Anne–style building constructed in 1894. It is one and one half stories, with a high-pitched gable roof and set on a low stone foundation. The Clermont Cemetery was established about 1850 and is next to St. Luke's Church. It includes approximately 300 burials, mostly dated from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]
