How This Small Tennessee Town Became One Of The Best Places To Live In The U.S.
We Tennesseans may not need convincing why our state is one of the best in the country, but one town in Tennessee is being recognized as a stand-out city, and that town in Murfreesboro. The city is absolutely booming. In the last 20 years, the population has doubled, making it the fastest growing city in the state. Just what is it that’s making people move here? We’ve compiled this list with a few of the many reasons why.
Murfreesboro is ripe with history and historical sites, including the Stones River National Battlefield, which is a Civil War battlefield. The site is home to a Civil War cemetery that features over 6500 graves, many of which remain unidentified.
Murfreesboro also has a lot of parks and greenways! The city features over 12 miles of greenways (with plans for more to come) throughout the city and the surrounding area.
Middle Tennessee State University calls this city home as well. Little known fact about MTSU: It's actually the largest undergraduate university in the state, ahead of even UT Knoxville.
Love music? Murfreesboro is often described by locals as having the music scene of Nashville "without the crazy." Those of you who have been to lower Broadway know that they're talking about. Be sure to visit their Main Street Jazz Fest every May.
Did you know that Murfreesboro was once the capital of Tennessee from 1818 to 1826? It's true! The city is located at the geographical center of the state, making it the perfect compromise between East and West Tennessee. Visit the Oaklands Historic House Museum (pictured above) to learn more about the local history!
Despite all the booming that Murfreesboro has been doing, they still manage to keep that old small town charm. The square in downtown Murfreesboro is on par with that of any small town in Tennessee. How can this city get any better?
Even with the influx of people, Murfreesboro is still pretty cheap to live in. And, with it being less than an hour from Nashville, it's the perfect place to commute from.
