Clarksville to continue its reputation as a friendly, close-knit community.

Welcome to Clarksville

Preserving history and fostering community are at the forefront of this peaceful neighborhood, just steps away from well-established commercial districts.
Just west of downtown and embodying the heart and soul of Historic Old Austin, the neighborhood of Clarksville is rich in heritage and strives to maintain its character throughout the city’s new growth. Clarksville is bounded by the Johnson Creek Greenbelt to the west, Enfield Road to the north, and West 6th Street to the south, conveniently located adjacent to the downtown shopping areas.
Clarksville has a significant history as the oldest surviving freedman’s town west of the Mississippi and was established by Charles Clark in 1871. Residents work tirelessly to preserve the area’s culture, including its abundance of homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This fosters a pervasive sense of togetherness, enabling Clarksville to continue its reputation as a friendly, close-knit community.
Clarksville’s home options include charming bungalows, charming Craftsman homes, modest single-family abodes, and even the occasional multimillion-dollar estate. Thanks to this eclectic feel, buyers can easily find their perfect aesthetic among the multitude of options.

Local Lifestyle

The interior of Clarksville remains quiet and mainly residential. Still, the neighborhood picks up in busyness on its outskirts thanks to the bounty of shops and dining along its exterior commercial strips. Residents can be found spending their days walking to nearby cafés and boutiques or taking the time to hit up any of the numerous galleries and museums in the area.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Most of the commercial offerings in Clarksville rest conveniently along its outer edges on North Lamar Boulevard and West 6th Street. Shoppers are treated to trendy boutiques like ByGeorge and national retailers, including LUSH and Anthropologie
Restaurants also populate these main commercial arteries, ranging from glamorous fine dining to healthful eateries and internationally-oriented establishments. An open kitchen welcomes diners into Clark’s Oyster Bar, a neighborhood joint whose chic interior is the ideal setting for enjoying its legendary raw bar, homemade bread, and tasty seafood dishes.
If the bread at Clark’s isn’t enough to satiate your craving for house-made baked goods, then head over to Swedish Hill Bakery just a few buildings over. Hearth bread, pastries, cakes, and macarons are just a few of their tempting items, and the menu here includes both day and dinner options, as well as catering. Lin Asian Bar + Dim Sum Restaurant is the expert in healthful Japanese cuisine, and Jeffreys of Austin holds a special place as one of Austin’s most recognizable fine-dining institutions.

Things to Do

A cornucopia of the arts and natural beauty, and residents are always within close proximity of visual feasts for the eyes. West Chelsea Contemporary is an art lover’s dream, featuring works from famed artists like Banksy, Yayoi Kusama, Fiona Rae, and Keith Haring.
Another institution specializing in contemporary art, the Wally Workman Gallery is set inside the lavish interior of a century-old historic home. Through events and daily showings, the gallery celebrates the inspiring minds of emerging and established contemporary artists throughout the world. Flower Hill Foundation is yet another institution set inside a historic home; however, rather than art, this beloved foundation focuses on preserving the city’s history and culture. 
History and nature merge in the form of the iconic Treaty Oak, the last remaining live oak tree of what was once a sacred grove of 14 trees. The grove served as a meeting location for the Comanche and Tonkawa tribes, and the tree has been dated as approximately 500 years old. Today, the tree stands as a symbol of strength and perseverance for all of Austin.


Clarksville is home to a number of excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:
  • Austin High School, 9-12, highly-rated public high school
