The institute in Kingsand was damaged after huge waves slammed into windows but the clock tower is still standing.
Local Alan Hudson was evacuated when the last storms hit: "We've seen it all before here but not quite as bad as that and they were coming over the roof and breaking against here when the coastguards evacuated us here; we had to get out the kitchen window."
Duchy fire crews took more than a 120 calls in 24 hours.
A van had to be towed from from rising water at St Neot and a tree crashed onto the roof of a cottage at Perranaworthal but no-one was hurt.

Helen Chivers from the Met Office tells the Westcountry Tonight why we are being hit by relentless storms: "They've been brought to us by the jet stream but they actually have their origins the other side of the world in the Indonesian region. There's been a lot of rain there and what it's done is it's set up the global jet stream to blow all of these storms towards us."
The ruined railway line at Dawlish took another battering on Friday night.
Check the latest updates from First Great Western, who say the line between Plymouth and Penzance and all branch lines in Cornwall will be closed until at least lunchtime; inspectors are checking the damage.
