This gingerbread style building was built around the 1870’s as the City Hall and Fire Station for the City of Murfreesboro. It was located on the corner of Church and Maple. It the 1920’s, the City Hall moved to Main Street. The “Po Boy Restaurant” was located there during the Depression.
Another BLAST FROM THE PAST: Murfreesboro Bank and Trust Company (est. 1905). This building and the one adjancent (McClellan's) were raized to make way for the Judicial Building which was (ironically) designed to resemble the MB Co. building.
Probably Walter Hill Dam near Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Shows power plant to the left of dam with "Murfreesboro Light & Power Co." painted on it. Part of Tennessee Highway Dept. photographs in Middle Tennessee & Chattanooga.
The old Rutherford County Health Department. This picture was taken in the 1950's. It still stands today at the corner of South Church St. and College. It is no longer the health department. The new health department today is one block north. The building is now home to the drug court and Rutherford County Human Resource Archives.
Above: By the 1950’s the Rutherford County Courthouse although it was the center of the county’s government affairs, it a fallen into disrepair. Local whittlers would gather with local politicians to discuss the events of the day. Photo on WGNSradio.com compliments of Shacklett's Photography.
A BLAST FROM THE PAST! Cecil Elrod's The French Shoppe was located at 118 North Church Street (current home of The Guidance Center), but the building was origianally The Princess Theatre. The French Shoppe moved into the building in 1929 and remained there until the early 1980's. Who has memories they would like to share of Cecil Elrod's The French Shoppe?
