Clifford lies about 42 miles east of Tonopah.

Silver was discovered in Clifford by Ed and James Clifford in late 1905. News of the discovery, and the sale of their claim for $250,000 caused a stampede. In less than two weeks the camp had forty tents and a saloon. Population peaked in 1908 with about a 100 houses and tents, including saloons, dance hall, stores, a post office (known as Helena), a stage line, and boarding houses. The camp soon died and thereafter leasers were active into the 1930s.

A mine headframe, an old car body, an old cellar, and one stone building shell remains. There are several vertical shafts in the area - use caution when exploring area.
