    Near Clifton there is some beautiful scenery including the San Francisco River and the Apache National Forest. US Highway 191 is a nice drive.

    The new courthouse is not very interesting either historically or architecturally. The old courthouse was built in 1911 and is much more interesting although like most buildings in the old downtown area it is unoccupied and in disrepair.

    Clifton is the only town in Arizona to have flood gates. They separate the upper, older part of town from the lower, more well-off part of town, where the county courthouse and most of the occupied housing is.
    The flood gates are there to prevent a flood in the event of one of Morenci mine's dams breaking upstream on the San Francisco River.
