Red River County Courthouse

This 1885 courthouse features walls and turrets of yellow sandstone, plus a clock tower. Known as "Old Red," the clock ran smoothly until 1961, when it was converted to electricity and soon began striking 120 gongs--a day known in Clarksville as "the night it got later than ever before"--until someone unplugged it. The clock still tolls each hour.

At Walnut and Madison streets.
