History


Clifton was originally a small railroad station named Devereux Station. Union soldiers guarded the station during the Civil War. Harrison Otis purchased Devereux Station after the war. He opened a hotel, and the town became a destination for wealthy residents of Washington. The town's name was changed to Clifton Station in 1868, and it later became known as Clifton. Visitors were attracted to the small town's atmosphere, hot springs and saloons. Clifton was the first town in Fairfax County to have power. A store and high school contributed to the town's growth in the early 20th century. A Clifton home buyer can learn more about the town's history here.
