Clarksville, TN

Clarksville, Tennessee, is located in Montgomery County, near the confluence of the Cumberland and Red rivers. It is the county seat for Montgomery and is the fifth-largest city in the state. Clarksville is also known by the following nicknames: "the Queen City," "Queen of the Cumberland," and "Gateway to the South."

In 1785 Clarksville was incorporated and named after General George Rogers Clark, who was a frontier fighter and a Revolutionary War hero. Clarksville is home to two of the oldest institutions in the state: Northern Bank, which was was established in 1854, and the Leaf-Chronicle newspaper, established in 1808.

NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

Clarksville features a variety of housing options in its many neighborhoods. There is everything from executive residences to farms. Due to the influx of businesses in the area, the cost of living is much lower than in other communities. Some of the most affluent neighborhoods in Clarksville include Sango, Wayfield Boulevard, Memorial Drive, Shade Grove, Saint Bethlehem, Kirkwood, Madison Street, Pollard Road, and Kenwood.

Downtown Clarksville is the geographic and historical center of the community. However, the area has been plagued by a series of natural disasters, from floods to fires to tornadoes. The Clarksville Downtown District Partnership encourages business development in the area, as well as residential development and infrastructure improvements.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Clarksville was recently dubbed "Tennessee's Top Spot" because of a multibillion dollar investment that Hemlock Semiconductor (a subsidiary of Dow Chemical) earmarked for the construction of a facility in the community. The Hemlock facility is expected to bring more than 900 jobs to the community, and the company is already planning to develop educational programs for training new employees. The city has since adopted "Tennessee's Top Spot" as its slogan.

In 2001, Clarksville-Montgomery County Corporate Business Park was developed on 960 acres of land. There are more than 20 businesses located in this industrial park.
