Founded in 1884, Clermont was first platted out on the rolling hills between Lake Minnehaha to the south and Lake Minneola to the north. Clermont was named after the hometown of A. F. Wrotnoski who was one of the founders. In 1916, the town was incorporated, with the first interested developer, Edward Denslow, organizing The Postal Colony Company in 1922. Denslow purchased 1,000 acres of land in Clermont and planted citrus groves, which were owned and taken care of by people who had retired from the post office. During a period, Clermont was one of the principal citrus growing places in the United States. In 1956, the Florida Citrus Tower was built, becoming one of Florida’s most visited historic sites. The Florida Citrus Tower was the tallest structure in the state for quite some time, allowing visitors to look out upon thousands of acres of citrus groves, as well as being able to see all the way to Orlando.
