Clarksville was the first American settlement in the Northwest Territory in 1783 and the launch site of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Two hundred years with the US Army through 8 wars gives us our military foundation. The first vasectomy was performed at the Indiana Reformatory in Clarksville. We also have significant archaeological artifacts on display. 

Clark County is significant in local, state, and national history. Ten years in the making, the Clark County museum offers fun for ages 4 to 104!
