Neighborhood Highlight:  Murfreesboro is located in Rutherford County, the fastest growing county in Tennessee and is home to the county seat. Established in 1811, Murfreesboro was originally named Cannonsburgh but was soon renamed for Revolutionary War hero Colonel Hardy Murfree. Since that time it has grown into one of the fastest growing cities in the country spurred by its industrial and commercial growth.

Murfreesboro is also home to the state's largest university, Middle Tennessee State University. Money Magazine has recently ranked it as one of the top 100 most livable small cities in America and all it takes is a visit to see why.
