Murfreesboro Tennessee Real EstateBy Wikipedia
Murfreesboro is a city in Rutherford County, Tennessee, United States. According to the 2005 census estimate the city had a total population of 86,793. It is the county seat of Rutherford CountyGR6. The center of population of Tennessee is located in Murfreesboro. Although Murfreesboro is sometimes considered a suburb or exurb of Nashville, Tennessee, it is far enough away [about 35 mi (56 km)] and has a large enough population to maintain a separate identity from its larger neighbor. Murfreesboro is the location of Middle Tennessee State University, the largest undergraduate university in the state of Tennessee. Murfreesboro is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. From 1990 to 2000, the town's population grew 50%, from 46,000 to 69,000.
In 1811, the Tennessee State Legislature established a county seat for Rutherford County. The town was first named "Cannonsburgh" in honor of Tennessee politician Newton Cannon, but was soon renamed "Murfreesboro" for Revolutionary War hero Colonel Hardy Murfree, later the great-grandfather of author Mary Noailles Murfree. As Tennessee grew westward, it became clear that having the state capital in Knoxville would be a burden to those who had to travel from the western end of the state. In 1819, Murfreesboro became the capital of Tennessee until 1826, when Nashville became the state capital. On December 31, 1862, the Battle of Stones River, also called the Battle of Murfreesboro, was fought near Murfreesboro. This was a major engagement of the American Civil War. After the battle, Murfreesboro was used as a supply depot for the Union Army. Stones River National Battlefield is now an historical site.
