Significance: The Washington Hotel is an extensively altered structure dating from the mid-1820s. It has association with Clarksville's mid-19th century prominence as a port on the Cumberland River. The hotel served travelers for many years until its conversion into offices for a tobacco warehouse in 1884. From 1884 to the mid-20th century the building has been a part of Clarksville's prominent tobacco industry. Although altered in the 20th century it still displays aspects of its original architectural character.
