Listing No. 6801

1845 Antebellum
Clarksville, MO

Elgin Cottrell House

The Hezekiah Elgin House (c.1845) at 209 South First Street in Clarksville, MO has the honor of being one of the oldest
houses on record in the City of Clarksville and one of a few remaining houses on the River Front.

The Elgin family history in Pike County began with William Elgin who in 1816 bought a 300 acre Spanish Tract said to
extend north and south from Clarksville and west for three quarters of a mile. William's son, Hezekiah S. Elgin came to
Clarksville in the early 1800's. He opened a trading post and built one of the first roads between St. Louis and
Clarksville. He also built the Elgin Opera House and Hotel which were both destroyed by fire in the late 1800's.
