Clarksville is located in south-central Virginia. It is in Mecklenburg County but overlaps into Halifax County. As of the 2000 census, the population was 1,329 residents. The downtown area of the city has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Virginia's Historic Register. In 1818, Clarksville was the first incorporated town in the county of Mecklenburg, and settlers soon populated the area due to its' temperate climate and fine tobacco soil. By 1832, Clarksville was one of the fastest growing towns in Virginia. A walking tour of the town takes you past more than 60 churches, homes and businesses that date to the late 18th century. Architecture ranges from Victorian to Greek Revival to Queen Anne, and the town's brick lined sidewalks and decorative lighting lend a Currier and Ives charm to the shops and restaurants that await visitors. Clarksville is located on Kerr Lake, also known as Buggs Island Lake. With 50,000 acres of water and 800 miles of shoreline, it is the largest lake in Virginia and one of the most scenic in the south. Buggs Island Lake offers water sports of almost every kind, but it's most popular, however, for boating and fishing, especially for catfish. Clarksville is host to the annual Virginia Lake Festival, which draws some 80,000 visitors. This three-day event culminates with a spectacular fireworks show over the lake and has been named among the "Top Twenty Festivals in the Southeast," by the Southeast Tourism Society.

Clarksville Weather & Climate

The North Central region of the state has a moderate climate; four seasons without the extremes seen in other parts of the country. Latitude accounts for some climatic variations, as do soils, plant cover and inland bodies of water. The central region, in winter, is protected by the western mountain ranges, so temps are usually 10-20 degrees warmer than in the mountains. In summer, when the air is dry enough to keep cloudiness at a minimum for several days, temperatures may reach 100 in the interior at elevations below 1,500 feet. Usually, however, clouds limit the sun's heating capacity and an entire summer sometimes passes without a high of even 90 degrees. North Carolina is outside the usual tornado path in the United States, but tropical hurricanes do come close enough to influence the weather about twice in an average year.
