CLARKSVILLE Historical Society

The Clarksville Historical Society was founded by town councilman Bob Popp in April of 1996. A room in the Clarksville Municipal Building was set aside as a museum of town history. A collection of items from an earlier museum, sponsored by the Clarksville JayCees, was the nucleus of the present collection. Currently, a collection of artifacts, documents, maps and photographs obtained over the past 12 years are cataloged and housed in the museum.

The Society founded and hosted the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Commemoration for 6 years at the site where the famous expedition began, and were partners with the Falls of the Ohio State Park in the placing of the replica cabin at the George Rogers Clark Homesite at the Park.

In addition, the Society spearheaded the building of the Clarksville War Memorial on the grounds of the Municipal Center.
