People consider shopping downtown as "experience shopping" interacting with people and supporting community retailers rather than frantically hunting only for bargains. There's a connection between customers and the entrepreneurial spirit of downtown businesses, which reflect the character of our community through their unique products, services and atmosphere. Located in historic buildings, these merchants preserve an authentic sense of place.
In fact, that's what Murfreesboro's downtown offers, an authentic sense of place unlike any other. It's unique and uniquely ours.
Built in 1859, the pre-Civil War constructed Rutherford County Courthouse is still a working county building. This was the site of General Morgan's raid before battle.
