HPC Working to Honor the Service of Clarksville Veterans

Veteran Banners

The Clarksville Historic Preservation Commission is beginning a new program called “Clarksville Courage” to honor Clarksville Veterans with banners on Main Street.

“The Commission is always looking for ways to lift our community up and create a sense of place, said HPC Chair Lynn Lewis. “We want to remind our citizens that Clarksville has a long and storied history of defending our country, going back to our founder George Rogers Clark and the American Revolution.”

Lewis says Clarksville citizens have fought for our country throughout our history and this program of honoring those folks is just another way for the Commission to serve our Town.

Anyone may purchase a banner for a family member or friend who is an honorably discharged United States Military veteran and who lived in Clarksville at some point in his/her life. The banners are full-color, double-sided heavy duty vinyl and will include the veteran’s name, a military photo, branch of service and years of service or war served. They will be hung on Main Street from May to September 2024. The cost for a banner is $125.00, and the banner will be returned to the purchaser in September of 2024.

For more information, refer to the online application. You may also pick up a paper application at the Clarksville Library Branch located at 1312 Eastern Boulevard. The deadline to apply for a 2024 banner is October 15, 2023.
