Clarksville feels like a quaint village, so self sufficient and conveniently located that one could trade his car in for a bicycle. If you do choose to drive you will enjoy a few minute commute to downtown as Clarksville is located between Mopac and Lamar just off of 6th street.

Clarksville was named for a freed slave named Charles Clark after a portion of the then-Mayor’s plantation was allocated for freed-slave housing. The mix of historic, single family homes, to student apartments and young professional starter homes and condos mirror the diversity of residents who call this far-from-suburban neighborhood home.

Because the area is so walkable you just can’t help but stumble upon one restaurant and cafe after another along it’s lush mature-tree-lined streets. The area is protected from growth by a strict preservation committee that maintains the unique personality and nostalgia.

Clarksville is far from suburbia; it’s an eclectic urban hub in the heart of the city so it attracts people who love to be in the mix of things. Clarksville has a good blend of apartments, condos, and homes. The cozy homes attract young families, the condos are populated with young professionals, and the funky apartments are popular with students. It’s a hip area and is home base for much of the city’s creative crowd (there are many art galleries in Clarksville), and it’s a very fun place for singles.
