    It has been an experience. I have enjoyed this quiet, peaceful,neighborhood that I live in. I have learned alot since I have been a resident here in Clarksville especially about the Southern hospitality. Most of the people here are very friendly and down to earth people thT care for others. I have had the pleasure of being able to call this home and to experience the beauty of this town. I am grateful for this place. I attend Austin Peay State University as a first time college student.

    Montgomery County is my home. I grew up here and raised my kids here.My grandchildren were also raised here. I hate that our town is not quite as safe now and I wish we had more places for our young people to hang out in non smoking and non drinking places. I love the churches in this town. We have a variety of different religions. We are also a military town with Ft.Campbell so close. I love my home town!
    Our county is very safe. I love to take walks around the block at night and don't feel threatened in any way. The sidewalks are kept clean and clear and the landscaping of the grass and the trees are magnificent. The county takes pride in the appearance of their county. During Christmas, the county goes and decorates and it gets the whole community involved with one another and it allows us to get into the Christmas spirit. It is amazing how something so small as putting up Christmas decorations can impact each person that lives here. You can walk along the Cumberland River at night and just be flabbergasted by the view.
