Homes for Sale in Clarksville
Clarksville is the name of an unincorporated community in Howard County, the third wealthiest county in the United States according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The community is named for William Clark, a farmer who owned much of the land on which the community now lies. According to the 2000 U.S. Census Bureau, Clarksville District 5 had a population of 56,239, with median income of $150,272. The estimated average income in 2009 was $195,124, with median income of $160,606. Some of the most expensive homes on the East Coast are located in or around the town, whose property values are among the highest in the country. The villages of River Hill and Pheasants Ridge are contained within Clarksville, the newest additions to the planned community of Columbia. Clarksville's public schools, part of the Howard County public school system, are among the highest-ranked in the nation and often have significantly higher funding than competing private and charter schools. The area is located southwest of Baltimore and north of Washington, D.C., and many residents of Clarksville commute to work in one of these two cities or their close-in suburbs. Montrose and Richland Farm are listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
