Sevier Station - Clarksville, TN

Sevier Station

Perhaps the oldest building I have come across in Middle Tennessee is Sevier Station, built by Col. Valentine Sevier, a defender from the Cherokee Indians of the early settlers of the area. Located in Clarksville, TN on Red Paint Hill. The Marker on the right was placed there by the D.A.R. in 1936

  1. This was built in 1792 by Valentine Sevier. Im researching my Ancestors and found out he is about ten generations back on my mothers side. Very intersting stuff! In 1742 Valentine Sevier was a member of a colonial militia company known as "No 5" captained by Peter Scholl under Col. Beverly. Scholl was a nearby resident of Smith's Creek and married a niece of Daniel Boone.
