Old Post House - Clarksville, TN

Old Post House - Clarksville, TN

Located in a part of town that used to be called Oak Grove, this is midway between the center of Clarksville and Hopkinsville, KY. This served as a stop for the triweekly stagecoaches which operated between Nashville and towns along the Ohio River. The building was erected in the 1830's (possibly sooner) and also was used as a post office, a church storeroom and a private residence.

Today, you can find this along highway US 41A as it runs along the entrance to Fort Campbell. As the highway had to be expanded, this was considered important enough to build around as this is between the northbound and southbound lanes, along with Bethel United Methodist Church and Patriot Park. It is also on the National Register of Historic Places. The city renovated it, which was finished in the fall of 1990.
