Clifton Lutheran Church was started in 1941 but the current building was not completed until
1954. In the early years, the parsonage not only housed the pastor and his family but had a chapel
which could seat 80 people and a meeting hall.

All parish and congregational activities were held at the
parsonage including a weekday nursery school each morning,
then Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Brownie and Girl Scouts each
These activities came to a close in the fall of 1954 with the
dedication of the new church.
The parsonage was designed and constructed by Mr. & Mrs. Herbert H. Hazel. It was designed to
be easily and economically converted to a roomy permanent parsonage after it served its
temporary purpose of housing the early congregation and the pastor's family.
