Clarksville is a charming neighborhood located minutes from downtown Austin. The Clarksville community was founded back as early as the 1860’s when Texas Governor Elisha Pease sold this portion of his plantation to area slaves who built homes. A decade later it was named after a freed slave who started the neighborhood Charles Clark and soon became Clarksville.
