20 Best Things to Do in Murfreesboro

Murfreesboro is Tennessee's fastest growing city, a lively college town, and a place where history plays as important a role as the future. With the Stones River passing through, the city is full of green spaces, parks, and hiking trails linked by the Greenway, which mostly runs parallel to the river. The best place to get the feel of the city’s past is historic Cannonsburgh Village. To learn about how the American Civil War affected the whole area, visit Fortress Rosecrans and Stones River National Battlefield with the famous Hazen Brigade Monument. The city is also surrounded by fertile agricultural land, with a number of small and large farms. In some, like Blueberry Patch and historical Batey Farms, visitors can pick up their own produce. Toot’s Good Food and Fun restaurant is another great place to try real Southern food. Photo: Jim Vallee/Fotolia

Fortress Rosecrans was built in January 1863 by the Federal Army after the Battle of Stones River in order to fortify Murfreesboro.

»Hazen Brigade Monument

Hazen Brigade Monument


The Hazen Brigade Monument is located in the Stones River National Cemetery, the resting place of 6,850 soldiers who died during the Battle of Stones River in 1862–1863. It is the oldest monument to the Civil War that is still located in its initial place. The brigade, led by Col. William B. Hazen, was known for its crucial role in the Battle of Stones River, on its very first day. The brigade's efforts stopped the Confederate Army’s advance and prevented it from pushing the Union Army back to Nashville. As soon as the battle was over, Colonel Hazen and Col. Isaac C. B. Suman decided to build a monument in honor of the soldiers who had lost their lives during the battle and their men worked on its construction over the next 6 months. They buried 45 of their brigade’s soldiers within the monument’s stone enclosure.
