Learn more about Clarksville

Clarksville, renowned for its verdant streets, pedestrian-friendly layout, and close proximity to downtown, offers more than just its convenient amenities. To solely focus on these features would overlook the rich historical legacy that the community holds, a legacy that its longstanding residents have valiantly fought to preserve. The neighborhood's origins can be traced back to the land that once encompassed the slave quarters for Governor Elisha Pease's mansion, a few blocks north of the area. Following the Civil War, Pease sold or granted parcels of this land to some of his former slaves, offering them the opportunity to establish their homes and livelihoods. Notably, Charles Clark, a former slave, became a pivotal figure in the community and ultimately lent his name to the neighborhood. Clark purchased two acres and subsequently sold portions of it to other freedmen, contributing to the establishment and growth of the community. The historical significance and resilience of Clarksville's residents make it a truly remarkable and cherished part of Austin's heritage.
