CLARKSVILLE
Tennessee, U.S.A.
TENNESSEE’S TOP SPOT
Welcome to Clarksville, Tennessee. This fairly small town has around 136,000 inhabitants and is known for its rich history in Tennessee's gorgeous natural scenery.
The city is one of the state's oldest cities and was incorporated in 1758. It was named in honor of General George Rogers Clark, frontier fighter and revolutionary war hero, as well as brother of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Clarksville has been nicknamed The Queen of the Cumberland and Gateway to the New South. More recently, Tennessee has been called Tennessee's Top Spot. A Top Spot it is indeed, with several famous landmarks and noteworthy names. Clarksville is the birthplace of Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix and Robert Penn Warren.The Olympia track champion Wilma Rudolph is celebrated with a bronze statue at the corner of Corner Street and Riverside Drive. Since Tennessee played an important part in the Civil War, there are several landmarks worth visiting if you enjoy American history. The Fort Deviance Civil War Park and Interpretive Center displays well-preserved remains of the army fort's outer walls, gun platforms and powder magazine. Nearby, you'll find Fort Donelson where General Ulysses Grant's troops defeated the Confederate army in 1862. For shopping and recreation, head downtown. The historical district features architecture from the 1800s, art galleries, boutiques, antique shops, brewpubs and locally owned restaurants. Here you will also find the Roxy Theatre and Customs House Museum and Cultural Center, so there is certainly no lack of options in the art department. The city has several terrific public educational institutions, running the gamut from elementary schools to colleges like Austin Peay State University. Living here is affordable, with the housing prices three percent lower than the national average.
