(MURFREESBORO) Did you know that the first public library in this region was at the Woman’s Club? It ran from 1887 to 1948 when Linebaugh started. The local 501(c)(3) group is still located in the 1856 Italian-style house at the corner of East College and Academy streets.

According to the group’s website, the founding members of the Woman’s Club of Murfreesboro sought to promote reading, literacy, cultural enlightenment, the beautification of our town, and provide volunteer service to a wide variety of social needs. . Today, their members continue to remain active in volunteering at the local, state, and national levels in a number of organizations. Fellowship opportunities are funded through a variety of organizational fundraising efforts.

This spacious historic home is just off Murfreesboro Square and has been used for elegant gatherings, weddings, birthday parties, dinner parties and other elegant social events.
