Living in Clarksville

The city of Clarksville is the fifth-largest in the state of Tennessee. In 1785, Clarksville became Tennessee’s first city, and is one of the fastest growing cities in the entire country, with people moving to Clarksville from around the United States, as well as expatriates relocating from overseas. Clarksville was named after General George Rogers Clark, a hero of the Revolutionary War, who led fighters against the British troops in 1778. The city’s nicknames include ‘Queen City’ and ‘Queen of the Cumberland’. One of the unique attractions in the city is the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center – the second largest general museum in the state; it celebrates fine art, science and history. Housed in a distinctive building that used to be the Clarksville Department of Electricity, it is one of the most eye-catching landmarks in the city. Expats living in Clarksville will find a great deal of interesting history to discover!

Moving to Clarksville

The 2010 census indicated that there were 132,957 people living in Clarksville at the time, which had risen to an estimated population of around 142,500 by 2012. Clarksville has been recognized by Money magazine as one of the cities most likely to attract creative class jobs in the coming decades, and this flourishing economy has also attracted a number of expats. A growing number of people are moving to Clarksville from Europe and Asia in particular. However, since moving to a foreign country is hardly ever simple, InterNations has been founded to make expatriate life easier. You can, for example, find advice and articles on relocating and more in our Expat Magazine. And as a member of InterNations you will also be part of a buzzing online community, where you can discuss common issues with other expatriates, including those living in the United States.

Working in Clarksville

Fort Campbell is a US Army base, which lies 10 miles away from downtown Clarksville. The camp is officially classed as being in the neighboring state of Kentucky, as the U.S. Post Office on the base is on the Kentucky side of the camp. The majority of the acreage of the camp is, however, located within the state of Tennessee, and many people working in Clarksville are employed directly or indirectly by the base. Fort Campbell is currently home to the 101st Airborne Division of the US Army – in which Jimi Hendrix served when he was a member of the military. Much of Clarksville’s economy can be attributed to the existence of the base – as well as providing employment it is also responsible for drawing thousands of visiting family members to the city each year, boosting the retail and leisure industries there. Other common areas of employment, are public administration and retail, as well as in manufacturing for companies such as American Standard and SPX Corporation. The city is also home to Austin Peay State University, a public university often listed as one of the fastest-growing universities in the state, another large employer of not only expats in Clarksville.
