Clarksville, known as “Gateway to the New South”, is the fifth largest city in Tennessee and was incorporated in 1785. Clarksville was named for General George Rogers Clark, a Revolutionary War hero and the brother of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Clarksville homes enjoy a convenient city location with old-fashioned southern charm.
Clarksville was founded on the Cumberland River. During the 1820s, steamboats carried oats, tobacco, soy beans and cotton downstream to the Ohio River then up to Pittsburgh or to the Mississippi River or New Orleans. Clarksville became the largest market for dark-fired tobacco used in smokeless products.
The Fort Campbell Military Reservation is located just northwest of Clarksville. Clarksville homes are right near the Roxy Theater, a backdrop for countless films, music videos, photo shoots, television commercial and documentaries. The music video for the Grammy-award winning song “All I Wanna Do” by Sheryl Crow was filmed in front of the Roxy.
Major corporate employers in Clarksville include Fort Campbell, American Standard, Premiumwear, Inc. and Vulcan Corporation. In 2001, Forbes Magazine voted Clarksville the 90th Best City for Business and Careers.
