Historic Charm on the Mississippi, Clarksville, Missouri …
Clarksville, Missouri is located just an hours drive north of St. Louis on the banks of the Mississippi River.
This sleepy little early 19th Century river town that was in its heyday when steamboats ruled the Mississippi was awakened by the arrival of new settlers. In the 1980s Clarksville was discovered by artists and antique dealers as a place with much of its 19th Century charm intact. Its old storefronts became ideal places for art galleries, stores for resident craftsmen who produce the next generation’s antiques, and fine antique shops and restaurants.
Many of these artisans lived in the loft like spaces above their galleries and storefronts. As the town’s artist colony grew, it became a vacation destination with several fine B & B’s and restaurants to compliment the galleries and boutiques. In addition to the art and the antiques, the Mississippi draws boaters and kayakers.
The historic business district is proud of its location on the banks of the Mississippi. In the past twenty years during two major floods of the Mississippi River the historic business district was saved by the efforts of Clarksville citizens and thousands of volunteers who constructed sandbag levees.
The floor plan of the house has a large living room, kitchen, dining room and a study or bedroom on the first floor with a bath. The second floor has an oversized master bedroom space with a walk in closet, a large bath and two additional bedrooms. The windows on the east side open up to the magnificent views of Clarksville and the Mississippi. The house has a full walkout basement that features a massive stone foundation and an unusual interior cistern. Situated on a street of lovely restored historic homes just sixty five miles north of St. Louis in an historic community known for its art galleries, antique emporiums and unique boutiques.
