Whether or not you are a history buff, Fort Defiance Civil War Park & Interpretive Center is definitely an enjoyable place to go. This four-acre park features amazingly well-preserved earthworks fort, powder magazine and gun platforms, and peaceful walking trails around the earthworks of the original fort. There are also some trails meandering along the ridge to view the serene river with a lovely overlook of the downtown Clarksville.
The 1,500-square-foot Interpretive Center highlights exhibits about the life at the fort and the surrounding area during the Civil War era. It also presents a short film on local Civil war history, earthworks, overlooks and cannons on the grounds.
- Fort Defiance was originally occupied by American Indians.
