Originally, Murfreesboro was built to be the county seat of Rutherford County. The first name for the city was Cannonsburgh, after a Tennessee politician. However, very soon after the first settlers arrived and started creating the town, the name was changed to Murfreesboro. This name was in honor of Hardy Murfree, a Revolutionary War hero. From 1818 to 1826, Murfreesboro was the state capital of Tennessee until it moved to Nashville. By the time of the Civil War, Murfreesboro was home to many higher learning institutions. In 1911, the Middle Tennessee Normal School opened as a teacher training college. In 1925, it expanded to a full four-year institution of higher learning. It gained its current name, Middle Tennessee State University, in 1965. This thriving institution enrolls the highest number of undergraduates in the state each year.
The rich musical program at MTSU draws many musical events to the area each year. One of the largest annual events is the Main Street Jazz Fest. Held for two days every May, this festival draws some of the best contemporary jazz groups from around the country. Uncle Dave Macon Days, held each year in July, draw fans of old-time music and dancing. Many who love Civil War history visit nearby Stones River National Battlefield, site of a critical Union victory in late 1862 and early 1863. The Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village offers glimpses of life from the mid 19th century to the early 20th century. Murfreesboro is home to a healthy public school system that offers top-rated education from kindergarten through grade 12. Different private schools offer other educational options for parents and their kids.
