About Fort Defiance

Fort Defiance, which overlooks the confluence of the Red and Cumberland rivers, was a cornerstone of the Confederate defense of the area and an important part of the eventual Union occupation of Clarksville.  In 1982, Judge and Mrs. Sam Boaz, donated the property to the City of Clarksville. In 2008, the City secured a $2.2 million federal grant that was combined with local funding and construction of the interpretive center and walking trails began. The more than 1,500-square-foot Center features exhibits about the local area and the fort during the Civil War.

 

Fort Defiance Interpretive Center is open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. during the Spring and Summer.
