Clarksville Photos

9 posts in this topic

These photos were originally placed on the Nashville forum but there might be some interest on the Tennessee forum so I am posting them here as well.

Recent trip to Clarksville yielded these photographs. First photo is of the new FM Bank under construction downtown. The pic was taken from the railroad tressle over Commerce Street. The abandoned tressle was recently integrated into part of the Upland Trail Walking path which is connected to the Riverwalk.

Franklin Street has seen better days but I do believe is poised for a resurrection. It offers one of the finest outdoor museums of late 19th century Architecture to be found and still retains much charm.

This pic was also taken from the Upland Trail Walking path and the view is looking toward the Criminal Justice Complex.

This odd building was once a Post Office but now houses a museum

One of the most handsome courthouses you will find anywhere! They don't make them like this any longer, people!

PART II

This shot was taken from the roof of the Royal York Apartment building.

As was this one....

Franklin Street provides some wonderful detailing and displays some fine craftsmanship on many of its buildings. One of my favorites is the Knights of Pythias Building.

PART III (Final installation - "yeahhhhh")

Another pic of the new FM Bank under construction downtown as seen from the Upland Trail Walking path. I really like this building but I may be a bit biased since I was good friends with one of the Architects many year's ago.

Uhm, the next one is not a good photo at all but it does partially show the pedestrian walkway over Riverside Drive and the Riverview Hotel is behind that clump of trees.

Finally, an empty lot and a construction crane in the distance. This photo is sort of symbolic, I suppose. There was once a building on the empty lot in the foreground but it was destroyed by the tornado which devestated downtown a few year's ago. As you can see, Clarksville is in the process of rising from that tragedy and I tell you what...... if I was a developer then that empty lot would certainly catch my eye.

Wow! I can't believe anybody hasn't replied to this thread yet, or said thankyou or something! These are really good pictures! I never been to Clarksville, so now I can kind of get a sense of what the city looks like.

I really like the courthouse and the new FM bank building. Thanks a lot for the pics! :thumbsup:

there good pictures, but you need to give people time. especially with the riverfront news overshadowing other stuff right now.

anyways, i remember many a day spending time on the riverwalk and this brings back memories of what you see from that area.

Thank you very much for the replies and compliments Fellowmann20 and Urbanbna. I only had one roll of film with me that day so there are some other photos I plan to take whenever I venture back. One of them will be a picture of Montgomery Central High School which was built in the late 1960's but I love the look of the structure; Three domes rising out of the water with an outdoor walkway surrounding it's inner shell. That school and the then "new" Clarksville High School were built at the same time (along with Northwest HS) and the Architects did not use a T-Square but a Compass to design those schools. Nary a right angle to be found anywhere. Architects from around the world, it is said, used to come to view these schools.

However, I do not know when I will make it back and my next photo project will be of some nature to be found in Murfreesboro.

^Good pics, keep 'em coming ! :thumbsup:

Thank you, fieldmarshaldj. If time permits on Saturday I may venture the Murfreesboro Greenway for some pics. I hope that Swan/Wooping Crane bird thing is still out on the water.
