This is the site of the town spring that was the source of water for early Clarksville. In 1784 the city founders erected a fort and laid out the town. Later, the spring was capped and diverted to the Cumberland River. It was uncapped briefly during the 1937 flood when the city had no water supply. The spring remains capped and underground.
