Murfreesboro Overview

Murfeesboro, TN is a college town, home to Middle Tennessee State University. It is located about 25 miles south of Nashville. Despite expanding commercialization along the interstate and a population around 100,000 the town still has been able to retain some of its small town atmosphere.

The town square is what you would expect from a much smaller community, with city hall in the center surrounded by all different types of businesses. The Stones River runs through the town and is thusly a large part of the community life. They have an extesive greenway with paths for biking and walking. The Stones River National Battlefield can be found here as well. This was the site of a Battle during the Civil War during the winter of 1862-1863. There are several old cemetery's in town as well. Cannonsbugh is esentially the city's museum, it consists of an old style town with Log Cabin houses and a few other buildings to show forth the history of the town from its founding through to modern times.

Murfreesboro is also less than a hour from a number of great state park areas, Natchez Trace, and Savage Gulf are both very close as well as the Duck River, and Cumberland Caverns.
