L & N Train Station - Photo By Roland WoodworthIf you are looking for a town with lots of History, you may want to visit Clarksville, Tennessee.

The L & N Train Station is located at  Commerce and 10th Streets. Ground breaking for the current location took place in September of 1881. 

 The first train rolled into Clarksville from Bowling Green, KY in 1860 when the Clarksville Depot was located on Depot Street, close to Cumberland Dr.

 

  Click to hear the song Take The Last Train To Clarksville.

 You can also see the Lyrics in the link below.

 "The Last Train to Clarksville"--written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart and recorded by The Monkees--became a 1966 number-one-hit when it peaked on the U. S .Billboard Hot 100 Chart.   As a protest to the Viet Nam War, the song tells of a young Fort Campbell soldier being shipped from Clarksville, Tennessee's L&N (Louisville/Nashville) Station en route to overseas' duty.  The G.I. who doesn't know if he will ever again return, wishes to see his sweetheart once more. *

The Clarksville Depot is the home of the Montgomery County Historical Society
