Three-quarters of a mile west of here at the Canadian River crossing was the popular overnight stage stop on the Old Santa Fe Trail. Clifton House Site was built in 1867 by rancher Tom Stockton, with materials brought overland from Dodge City. For years it served as headquarters for cattle roundups. After abandonment of Santa Fe Trail in 1879, it fell into disuse and burned.
