About Clifton

In 1859, the town of Clifton was established in Clay County. Today, Clifton contains a number of churches, a good newspaper and school, a bank, and other stores in the community. 


Clifton is located on the northern edge of the Republican River Valley, and has the unique distinction of being in two counties. Highway 9, Clifton's main street, divides the city; half lies in Washington County to the north and the other half in Clay County to the south.
