Clarksville Real Estate
The town of Clarksville, nestled in the Louisville metro area, has a rich history and the distinction of being the oldest American town in the Northwest Territory. Founded in 1783 by George Rogers Clark, Clarksville has been home to many interesting historical exchanges. William Clark, younger brother of George Rogers Clark, is believed to begun his famous expedition with Meriwether Lewis within the town limits. Interesting side note: Kentuckians often fought duels in Clarksville due to their state’s anti-dueling laws.
The Great Flood of 1937 submerged the entire town in 12 feet of water for over three weeks, effectively destroying the city. Clarksville was rebuilt and has experienced continuous growth. As of 2010, the population was made up of approximately 22,000 people and median income for a household hovered at at around $35,000.
Clarksville is home to several notable attractions, including the largest exposed fossil beds from the Devonian period (at Falls of the Ohio State Park), the 7th largest clock in the world (the Colgate clock), and one of the oldest continuously running community theaters in the US (Clarksville Little Theater).
