Clarksville, TN – Have you seen the old stone building on Walker Street in the New Providence area? If not, come by and take a look at it some time. This primitive looking building, labeled “Sevier Station”, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is touted as the oldest building in Montgomery County, Tennessee.
As you walk around and gaze at the roughhewn limestone quarried from the nearby bluffs, and ponder the old chimney placed oddly in the center of the building, and consider the apparent gun port built into the east side, may you contemplate the ground upon which you are standing.

Clarksville, TN – For years, Dr. David Rands, Austin Peay State University assistant professor of history, has studied why certain people are attracted to certain cities. Specifically, he examined why Korean immigrants to Japan choose to live in either Osaka or Tokyo.
