Clifford has had many names. First known as New Glasgow, it was a small mid-eighteenth-century settlement. Laid out in 1785 and renamed Cabellsburg, in 1803 it was named New Glasgow again. Finally, around 1880, it became Clifford after a nearby railroad stop. Located on the stage road, it flourished until the mid-nineteenth century, when it began a somnolent decline.
