Imagine Clifton Park with farms and woods; no traffic, no mall or stores, no restaurants, just families and trees. It's so hard to envision. I can remember little bits in the 1980's but even then it was nothing compared to when my grandmother was raising her family in the 50s/60s/70s.

Nana was born in South Troy and almost all of her life has been spent right here in the Capital Region. In this episode of Growing Up 518, Nana remembers her husband building a house a little too close to the in-laws and then purchasing their home on Route 146 in Clifton Park which is now a famous insurance company.
