A never-published story about the freedmen community in Clarksville will make you rethink Austin history.
Incredible work and writing and photos Addie- so glad I read even though it makes me late to appt… forwarded to two interesting men I know who live in Clarksville - will let you know what evolves but meantime KEEP KICKING BUTT!
That was such a great article about Clarksville. I remember when the roads were dirt and the promises that were made to neighborhoods about Mopac before it was built. They promised that trucks would never drive on it. I also remember when the train track crossed Windsor. We went to O'Henry and Austin High with kids that lived in Clarksville. It felt very small town back then. Thanks for a beautifully written article.
