Have you ever wondered what life was like when Murfreesboro was occupied during the Civil War? Do you know the different architectural styles that grace the city’s historic neighborhoods?
Have you questioned where the county’s place names originated or thought about the industries that transformed Murfreesboro from a small town to a vibrant city? Come to the newly opened Heritage Center to learn more about outstanding sites across the county that tell the rich story of our heritage. Residents and visitors alike can view exhibits, take tours, and learn more about the “must see” historic and cultural attractions in Murfreesboro and Rutherford County. From Civil War sites to greenways to a world-class children?s museum, the city’s got something for everyone!
The Heritage Center is a joint venture of the Heritage Area, Main Street Murfreesboro/Rutherford County, Inc., the City of Murfreesboro, and the Center for Historic Preservation at MTSU. Additional support comes from the Rutherford County government and State Farm Insurance.
