Clarksville is nestled in the middle of what is known as Old West Austin. The neighborhood is bounded by West Lynn on the east, Mopac on the west, 10th Street on the south and Waterston on the north.

Dating back to the 1870's, Clarksville is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Austin and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since the late Seventies. Two historic landmarks are located in Clarksvile: the Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church and the Haskell House. Many homes in the neighborhood are historic as well.
