Small Industries of Clermont were:

Limekiln Works

         The hill on the road between the A. R. Anderson farm and the Carmen Grillo farm was known as Limekiln Hill.  It received this name because a kiln was built there where limestone was baked to produce lime for the farmersí fields. John W. Anderson, father of A. R. Anderson and grandfather of Marshall Anderson, built and operated the kiln. The limestone was mined on that hill. This road served as the road to Marvindale and points beyond until 1930 when the present Route 146 is located.

                The Glass Factory

Dr. Guy Dutter, who was a doctor at the Kane Summit Hospital, and a group of investors from Kane, had a factory built on the Fred Anderson farm.  It was built in the field on the left on Route 146 as you approach the farm from Marvindale.  Their intent was to produce globes for both kerosene and natural gas lights. In early November a fire destroyed the plant and it was never rebuilt. At the time there was speculation that the fire was set by someone. No evidence was ever found and to this day no one knows how the fire started. However the enterprise of glass lamp globe production ceased forever.

              The Slaughterhouse

The slaughterhouse was located below the A. R. Anderson farm   along Red Mill Brook before arriving at the Pennsy Pond.  It was operated by Jake Amend to supply meat for his meat market in Clermont. These were the smallest industries located here. The others which were considered small industries were National Fuel Gas Company, United Natural Gas Company, the Timber Industry and Seneca Resources.
