The Association collects, researches, and preserves historical objects and artifacts that relate directly to the cultural values of the area. These objects, displayed in museum settings, form an educational resource through which their meaning can be made clear in historic context. They are offered to the public to illustrate realistically the broad patterns, themes, and trends that constitute Murfreesboro’s history.
By advocating for the preservation ethic, and espousing the need to maintain our heritage for cultural and aesthetic reasons, the Association strives foremost to promote stewardship and citizen responsibility for the care of our historic legacy. In so doing, we seek ultimately to make our community a better place in which to live.
