We are Clifford Township Area
Our society’s motto is the little organization that does big things.
Clifford township’s bicentennial celebration in 2005 resulted in the formation of our Historical Society. Since that time, fantastic community support has made it possible for our small organization to renovated the Hoover one room school, create a Museum of Local History and build an Agricultural Museum.
Our most ambitious project has been the renovation of the Yarns Cider Mill, which is now nearing completion and will press apples through the original 1894 Boomer & Boschert Screw Press inside the totally rebuild mill. But our most rewarding and just plan fun project has been the Clifford Children’s Garden, It is located adjacent to the 38 acre Clifford Community Park and offers a one acre enclosed area for all ages to enjoy educational signage of our local history while children grow their imaginations and hopefully learn to love history by playing in the different sections of the Garden based in the past.
