About

Mirroring a physical exhibit, Home Grown to Nationally Known: The Artistic Legacies of Murfreesboro, created by graduate assistants, Annabeth Hayes, Sherry Teal, and Lane Tillner, at the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University, this digital exhibit highlights the music legacy of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. This digital exhibit was created as part of a graduate seminar in Digital History at MTSU by students Charlie Dahan, Lane Tillner, and Matthew Whitten.

The MTSU Center for Historic Preservation was established in 1984 as a component of higher education reform activities across the state. The Center works with community groups in order to preserve their history as best fits their needs. The Center for Historic Preservation also administers the Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area, a component of the National Park Service. The Heritage Center of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County is co-sponsored by the Center and the City of Murfreesboro.
