SOME HISTORY AS KNOWN BY THE OWNER

  • This home was a general store and Post Office before Town of Clifton was formally established.

 

  • The owner's great-great grandfather moved from Pennsylvania to Fairfax County circa 1860.

 

  • Great grandfather, Otis Landis Detwiler, married Fanny Fairfax, around 1900.

 

  • "Smoke House" used to be a distillery (third smaller white structure)...

 

  • "Boat House" used as a work shop, has electricity, and got its name when a past relative built a boat on the upper level and after completion, was too large to remove from the house.
