Clifton is an incorporated town located in southwestern Fairfax County, Virginia, United States. Incorporated by the General Assembly on March 9, 1902, Clifton is currently one of only three towns in the county, the other two being Vienna and Herndon. Clifton's history begins pre-colonially, when the area was used as hunting grounds by the local Dogue Native American tribe.
Unlike most areas in Northern Virginia, the land around Clifton is far less built up than nearby areas, especially to its east and southwest. This was out of the worry that the over development near the Bull Run and Occoquan River would be environmentally damaging to the Occoquan Reservoir. Today, the southern and eastern portions of the area are heavily forested, with single-family homes, while the northern area became equestrian areas.
Fairfax County Public Schools serves Clifton. K-6 students in Clifton attend Union Mill Elementary School, while middle and high school residents are zoned to Robinson Secondary School.
