Founded: December 6, 1800
County Seat: Batavia
Largest city: Milford
Clermont County was established in 1800 and was the eighth County established in the Northwest Territory. The first
village in Clermont County was Williamsburg, which was established in 1796. A large number of the early settlers
came from Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Virginia. The original county seat was in Williamsburg (originally spelled
Williamsburgh), where it remained until 1823. It then moved to New Richmond along the Ohio River for one year before
moving to Batavia, where it remains today.
Clermont County played an important role in the Underground Railroad due to it being just across the river from
the slave owning states of Kentucky and Virginia. A number of villages in Clermont County gave refuge to slaves,
including New Richmond, Moscow, Williamsburg and Bethel. Clermont County was one of the first places that slaves
could rest and be safe. A number of Native American tribes called Clermont County home, including the Miami, Delaware,
Mingo, Ottawa and Cherokee. [Source:
