On March 10, 1902 Clifton Station was established as a town by Charter from the General Assembly. However, the town has been around since the 1700's when it was a plantation and has an early history as Indian hunting grounds.
As with the outlying towns from the nation’s capital in the 1800's, the railroad made Clifton into the town as it is today and its residents and government have worked to ensure that much of its original charm and character remains today.
Clifton, Virginia is located in the southwest part of Fairfax County and is nestled between the towns of Fairfax Station and Centreville before you reach the Loudoun County border.
