"Beautiful Old Town Clifton"

This is the town where I was born - a tiny, historic community only thirty miles from Washington D.C. With only 200 citizens, Clifton was founded in 1771. Many of the original buildings and houses still stand, and have been converted to residential homes and wonderful little shops and boutiques. Clifton is also near Fountainhead Park, where the Potomac River collects in an intricate lake-like body of water, providing wonderful fishing, kayaking, and general exploration through the trees and hills.
