Clarksville attributes its rural sensibility to its beginnings as a farmer's property. Prior to its development into one of Howard County's most popular suburbs, Clarksville was simply a large plot of farmland owned by William Clark. Today however, Clarksville has become much more than tilled fields. Instead it is home to some of Maryland's best schools, including one nationally recognized high school and several Maryland State Blue Ribbon award winners.
Although the town of Clarksville is still developing its own major attractions, the nearby River Hill Village Shopping Center and Columbia Mall offer endless entertainment possibilities. From celebrated restaurants and designer stores to multiplex cinemas, Clarksville and its neighboring towns provide the best that Howard County has to offer.
With all of the amenities in and around the town of Clarksville, property comes at a premium. Single family homes are for the most part relatively new construction. With a luxury consumer in mind, these centrally located homes feature stylish brick facades, generous lots, and customizable interiors. For those looking to settle in Howard County, Clarksville provides high end living in a quiet community that is still convenient to all the amenities of the city.
