    Default Clifton Oregon

    Clifton formed on the south bank of the Columbia River around a salmon cannery that was built in 1873 and closed in 1906.

    The town still has a few residents, all of whom I'm told still work as gillnetters on the river.




    The remains of the train tracks in town. There were still in use until 2005 until the passenger service was stopped. Since then two separate landslides have the closed the line totally.




    Here is a set of stairs that goes up to the upper town. I do not know if there were multiple sets, or just the one.



    This is the first house that you see when coming into town.

    The old general store is on the left. The right is the second house in town.



    As you can see, no trespassing signs are still about. The buildings at the back are part of the old cannery. The third house in town is behind me when I was taking the picture - protected by another No Trespassing sign.

    The main cannery building is just a bunch of pylons. It, along with most the other buildings were taken apart for lumber in the 1950's - 1960's time frame. I am in contact with one of the three residents in town and am trying to get pictures or permission to get closer.
