Historic Clarksville Missouri

Historic Clarksville, Missouri

Clarksville Missouri is located about an hour and a half drive from St. Louis, along the scenic Great River Road, Highway 79. It is a historic town, one that had its beginnings in the early 1800's when people from Tennessee, Virginia and Kentucky settled in the area and established Clarksville as a river port. Clarksville has gone through many changes since then, and through the efforts of its citizens, the downtown business district has been renovated and is now on the National Register of Historical Places. Visitors can take a self-guided walking tour which takes them past beautifully restored buildings housing artist, antique shops, jewelry boutiques, glass blowers, furniture craftsmen and much more. Clarksville is also recognized as wonderful place for bird watchers! Just north of the town is the Mississippi Flyway which is used by almost half of all North American waterfowl during their annual migrations. Winter brings the magnificent Bald Eagle to the area.
