Built in 1921 for the family of prominent Waco businessman and civic leader Albert Turner Clifton (1879-1948), this house is a fine example of the Tudor revival style of architecture. Outstanding features of the house include its steeply-pitched roof, central gable with decorative half-timbering and vergeboard, and a prominent three-bay brick and wood porch with Tudor arches. The home remained in Clifton family until 1950.
Recorded Texas Historic Landmark – 1991.
Classic Fit Series windows
That’s how the Texas Historic marker sitting in front of the Albert Turner Clinton House in Waco, Texas reads. Obviously, a house of the stature is, and has been, an important part of the Waco fabric. Yet by the early 1990s, it was in need of some major renovations. The Junior League of Waco purchased it with a grant and by 1995, much of the renovation was completed. More recent updating and repairs were completed between 2006-2010. Among the most recent additions were Quaker’s Classic Fit Series wood clad windows throughout the structure. Sightlines, design and an ability to simulated the original divided lites were a big factor behind their choice of windows.
Over the last 2 decades, the Clifton House not only serves as the headquarters of the Junior League of Waco, it has become a popular spot for community activities.
