Clarksville has a rich past. In 1800- A temporary settlement was made by pioneers.Life was not always good here in Missouri. In 1812 the early settlers were massacred by Indians. That did not stop people from coming and a new group of settlers soon arrived. In 1817 that early settlement became known as Clarksville. Supposedly named for William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition.Clark served as governor of the Louisiana Territory from 1813-1820 The Elgin family, who built My Old Historic House, came to Clarksville in 1817 ,with a land Grant from President James Monroe.My house was started in 1845 with an 1860 addition. Missouri became a State in 1820. In 1847-Clarksville was incorporated by Governor John Miller of Missouri. In 1850- Clarksville received its charter.

The Artists and Antique dealers are working real hard today to make Clarksville a fun tourist destination. Many events take place during the year. My house is open for tours and can be rented for special functions. The golf course and winery are both favorite places for weddings. In the summer the river comes alive with boaters and fishermen. We welcome every one,young and old. Come have an adventure where life is a little slower and everybody knows your name. I hope you think Clarksville is as beautiful as I think it is.
