Clifton, Texas

Settled about 1852 on the Bosque River, Clifton today is the largest town in the county, and the marketing center for surrounding agricultural efforts. It is also the gateway to Lake Whitney. Clifton's city park offers picnic facilities, playground equipment, and RV slots with fishing available on the Bosque and Lake Whitney.

Clifton was designated the "Norwegian Capital of Texas" in 1997 by the Texas State Legislature, and various Scandinavian traditions are still observed by descendants of Norse settlers. Clifton is a Texas Main Street City. Three antique malls feature more than 100 antique dealers in the downtown area.
