Question: What Is Murfreesboro TN Most Famous For?

Answer: Located in Rutherford County, Murfreesboro, Tennessee was founded in 1796, and is named after General Samuel Murfree, who was a Revolutionary War veteran. The town was originally named Smyrna, but changed its name to Murfreesboro when incorporated in 1812. This city is located 45 miles southeast of Nashville.

Murfreesboro has a unique history. Although Tennessee seceded from the Union shortly after Virginia and other southern states, Murfreesboro was one of the places where opposition to the Confederacy was particularly fiery, and it wasn’t until February 1862 that the state finally joined the other Confederate States in leaving the Union. For over three years the US Army and Confederate troops clashed in a campaign that would eventually shrink Tennessee by more than half. Stone’s River National Battlefield is home to a memorial for those whose lives were lost on both sides of the line, as well as to over 600 preserved acres that help commemorate what happened here with 12 interpretive trails.

With the presence of major corporations such as Nissan, Medtronic and Mitsubishi, and thousands of small businesses within the dynamic business sector, it is little wonder Murfreesboro is one of the most appealing places to do business. With excellent schools, a low cost of living and Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro attracts more than 80,000 college students annually.
