Take a walk, learn about Clarksville’s history
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 by Katy McElroy
Developed in 1871 as a freedom settlement, Austin’s Clarksville neighborhood has a rich history. In conjunction with Rodney McMillian’s exhibition “Against a Civic Death,” and in connection with the University of Texas photography exhibit “Seen & Unseen: A Sunday Afternoon in Clarksville,” the Contemporary Austin is hosting a walking tour of the neighborhood on Saturday, May 19. Reservations for the free tour open April 2, and space is limited. Participants will visit historic landmarks such as Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church and the Haskell House and discuss the impact of these historic places against the backdrop of the current landscape.
