Historic Hamlet

Clifton, the oldest settlement, was once the most important. Gristmills, sawmills, distilleries, and a plaster mill for ground rock gave employment to many people. The invasion of railroads to the north drew activity away from Clifton and left it a tiny settlement at the end of the road dreaming of its past. [1]
