Want to learn about the fascinating history of Clarksville? April 29th is your opportunity!!! That morning, Katie Deoloz, founder of ATX Walks, an organization that encourages walking as a way to get to know Austin's neighborhoods, and Mary Reed with the Clarksville Community Development Corporation (CCDC), will lead a free guided walk through Clarksville.
If you want to be part of the event, show up at the Haskell House, 1703 Waterston Avenue by 10AM. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water.
The CCDC's walking tour brochure will be available for all walkers in exchange for a donation to the CCDC, which is a 501c3 organization. Donations will be used to support the organization's missions:
1. Preserve the history of Clarksville.
2. Foster a sense of community in the neighborhood.
3. Maintain the economic and ethnic diversity of Clarksville through the CCDC's affordable housing program.
CCDC board members and volunteers will serve refreshments to all walkers at the Pauline Brown Clarksville Neighborhood Center, which is located in the 1800 block of West 11th Street.
Note: Recently, Katie led a small group of people on a walk around Clarksville. The photo that accompanies this blog is of Katie and the other walkers in front of the Haskell House. A good time was had by all.
