A Homecoming Celebration!
Join us at the Falls of the Ohio State
Park where today, a cabin dating from the early 1 9th century, similar
to the original George Rogers Clark cabin,
stands on the site overlooking the Ohio River. The site is on the Lewis
and Clark National
Historic Trail. The Falls of the Ohio State Park staff maintains the
cabin and staffs it; groups
are welcome and reservations for guided tours are available. The Lewis and Clark
Festival is held here annually.
The George Rogers Clark home site in Clarksville has been designated
by the National Park Service as an official site associated with the
Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. The home site is located
on Harrison Avenue in Clarksville and is part of the Falls of the Ohio
State Park. This site is where Meriwether Lewis and William Clark
(younger brother of George Rogers Clark) departed to begin their expedition to explore the west on October 26, 1803
and returned to in November, 1806.
In October of 2003, Louisville, Kentucky and Clarksville,
Indiana hosted the second of fifteen National Signature Events
commemorating the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial.
