Ransom's Mill Dam - Murfreesboro, TN

Ransom's Mill Dam

This old dam on the Stones River in Murfreesboro is now a nice swimming hole. This area is easily accessible from the Manson Pike Trailhead on the Stones River Greenway system. I don't have any info on the history of the mill.

This photo was taken the day before the big May 2010 flood, but this same spot made the news in August. A lightning strike shut off power at a sewer treatmant plant, causing sewage to make it into the river a little upstream from here. So for a short while, there was no swimming here.
