Description
Founded in 1784, Clarksville was named for Gen. George Rogers Clark, an 18th-century frontier military leader and U.S. Indian commissioner.

Connecting to the historic district is Cumberland RiverWalk, a 1.7-mile riverfront promenade that highlights the city's river heritage with an interpretive exhibit as well as entertainment venues and overlooks.
