I love living downtown so close to the Murfreesboro square. I am reminded everyday of the history of my town by the architecture that surrounds me: old homes, remnants of brick sidewalks, carriage stones still taking root in front of homes, and by our beautiful courthouse that presides over the Murfreesboro square. Our courthouse is only one of a six town square courthouses that date back prior to the Civil War still in existence in Tennessee. At one point, Murfreesboro served as the capitol of Tennessee. Next time you visit the town square, take a moment to look at the courthouse and imagine the downtown as a bustling town center or as it was occupied by Union forces. There is a lot of history here!
