Located in the heart of Michigan’s thumb, Clifford is a small rural community that was established in 1862. There have been many changes over the years since the Village of Clifford came into existence. The modern day village is much smaller than the original version. While the Baptist and Catholic churches are still here; we only boast a post office, a restaurant, a small convenience store, a car wash, laundry mat, one factory, an exercise facility, a fire hall and the village hall. The school house is now a library with a room available for rent. There is a very nice park with skate park and playground equipment. Only one of the elevators still stands, due to recent renovation by the DDA, it is now a beautiful rental space for events from weddings to open houses. The village is still a rural community with a sense of small town charm and neighborly cooperation, but most residents work outside the village.
