Clifton Virginia Information and Highlights

Less than 30 miles from Washington, DC and yet protected from the surrounding sprawl, Historic Clifton harkens back to a time when…well, back to a time when people were probably a little more used to expressions like “harkens back.”

The town was originally known as Devereux Station, but in 1868, its name was changed to Clifton Station and later shortened to Clifton. With some of the historic homes dating as far back as 1871, it’s small wonder that the town was declared a National Historic District by the U.S. Department of Interior in 1985.

The small town of about 200, affectionately referred to as the “Brigadoon” of Virginia, has been favored by US Presidents (Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, and Theodore Roosevelt.), first ladies (Nancy Reagan), Supreme Court Justices, Congressmen, Senators and other notable Washington celebrities.


Clifton has maintained the charm and feeling of a Norman Rockwell painting. The town has been around since the 1700s—initially as a plantation and earlier as Indian hunting grounds. The railroad started Clifton on its way to the town we know. The Civil War played an important part in the journey also. During the war, Clifton was known as Devereux Station. In 1868 Devereux Station became known as Clifton Station. In 1869, a post office was established and the town started growing with stores, schools and a community feeling. On March 10, 1902, Clifton Station was established as a town by Charter from the General Assembly.


Clifton has an area of about 192 acres. It is a small town with one main street going through it, aptly named Main Street, located in southwestern Fairfax County, Virginia.


Clifton, Virginia, gets 36 inches of rain per year. The U.S. average is 37. Snowfall is 16 inches. The average US city gets 25 inches of snow per year. The number of days with any measurable precipitation is 83.

One big complaint of city slickers – the folks who live in large cities – is that there is nothing to do in small towns. In fact, they cite that as their reason for staying in urban areas. By the look of it, Clifton is a town with only 200 residents. But if you thought for a split second that there was nothing to do here, think again. There’s more to do than meets the eye.
