Rutherford County Historic Courthouse

The Rutherford County Historic Courthouse

The Rutherford County Courthouse is one of only six pre-Civil War courthouses still standing in Tennessee. Constructed in 1860, the courthouse has witnessed every decade of Rutherford County's history from local wars to world wars, as well as happier times on the Murfreesboro square. Although the courthouse has undergone minor modifications over the years, it still represents the bedrock of our local history while providing new opportunities for the future.
