« Collier-Lane-Crichlow home touted as city’s ‘House of Mayors’

The Mayors 1 (Heritage Center)


Collier-Lane-Crichlow House is at Bell and Spring streets in Murfreesboro and is known as the “House of Mayors.”

Architect Sterling B. Jones purchased a tract of land in 1849 and built the home in 1850 as a two-story, solid brick rectangular I-house in a vernacular style with Federal, Greek and Georgian features.

A lovely garden once existed on the north lawn. The four-room home with central hallways retained decorative Victorian elements, such as the window casings, and is truly one-of-a-kind.
