History

Cloksburgh was founded around 1821 and named for a group of settlers known as "Cloks" (to this day, some of their descendants live in the area). Early Cloksburgh was a small farming community, and the town only had dirt roads for some time. The first paved road in Cloksburgh was paved in the 1950s. That road later became part of National Route 333.
