Rutherford County Courthouse - Murfreesboro, TN

Rutherford County Courthouse

The Rutherford County Courthouse in the Murfreesboro, TN town square is one of only six antebellum courthouses in Tennessee. With construction completing in 1859 at a cost of $50,000, the Greek-Revival style brick structure features classical columns on the East and West sides. The original cupola was replaced circa 1910 and similar styled wings were added on the north and south in 1965. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
