    Originally built by a formerly enslaved man just after the Civil War, the 1879 Haskell House stands as a reminder of Clarksville’s historic roots. Across generations, the home has also served as a place of worship and the site of a popular lunch program for seniors. Hezikiah Haskell, a union soldier and then a Buffalo Soldier, came to own the house by marriage. After the death of Hezikiah Haskell Jr. in 1976, it was deeded to the City and became a symbol of this Freedom Colony’s early history.
