About Clarksville, Tennessee

With a population of six figures, Clarksville is currently the fifth largest city in the state of Tennessee. Situated in the Montgomery County and named as its county seat, this metropolitan area is 72 km northwest of the state’s capital which is Nashville. The city was named after the American Revolutionary War’s highest American officer, George Rogers Clark. In the past, it was a major tobacco producer across the globe. The Queen City, an informal title for Clarksville, is the residence of the state’s oldest newspaper, The Leaf-Chronicle, and bank as well, the Northern Bank. What’s more interesting about this metropolitan is that it has a bank, named Women’s Bank of Tennessee, where men attendants are off limits because only women operate the whole place. A bank like this can’t be found anywhere else, just in Clarksville. The city owns a wealth of adorable and distinct spots. More than 30 species of trees are grown in the Clarksville City Arboretum; a brief glance into the lives of the European and African settlers in the 19th century would be possible in the museum of Historic Collinsville; a different kind of adventure is hidden inside the premises of Dunbar Cave State Park; the soul of live theater shows would be revealed by the Roxy Theater; preserved historical segments can be viewed in Port Royal Historic Park; and, amazing exhibitions are placed in the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center. Other favorite sites are the Governor’s Square Mall, Beachaven Vineyards and Winery, and the Clarksville Public Square.
