Overview


Considered one of the premier New South cities, Clarksville possesses a special history in the Volunteer State--a heritage shaped by pioneering spirits, commercial expansion, and a rich and vibrant community of many different races and creeds. Since its early days as a frontier settlement in the late 1700s, the people of Clarksville have persevered much, from inclement weather to hostile Indian raids, and their tenacity and persistence in carving a successful city along the shores of the Cumberland River have left an indelible mark on Tennessee's past and a lasting effect on its future. This volume, with over 200 black-and-white photographs, shares Clarksville's unique story through word and image, allowing readers a rare opportunity to travel back in time when the city was still growing from a frontier town into one of the state's largest cities. Clarksville serves as fitting testimony to an incredible array of local personalities, including statesmen, athletes, merchants, and teachers, and their lasting legacies, ranging from the excellent traditions of Austin Peay State University and local schools, the diverse architectural styles of the historic Downtown District and area dwellings, and the overall enthusiasm and resolve of its citizens to maintain the city and continue to work towards its improvement and evolution.
