Clarksville is desirable due to its convenient location to downtown Austin and its creative and eclectic vibe. Clarksville’s hilly, tree-lined streets are often filled with cyclists, joggers, and dog-walkers. Many artists call this area home and several art galleries are within walking distance. The 500 year old Treaty Oak is also in Clarksville, a symbol of the rich history of the Austin area.
Located immediately west of downtown Austin, Clarksville was founded by freedman Charles Clark in 1871.
