There are just over 6000 residents spread out over almost 50 miles of the town, which makes us the second most populated township in the county. Included in the township of Claverack is the Village of Philmont, which has its own municipal structure (www.philmont.org) and was incorporated in 1892. We are proud of our rural, academic and industrial history and cherish the small town and rural atmosphere that is fundamental to our community.
