Murfreesboro War Memorial

The Murfreesboro War Memorial, located on Murfreesboro’s Town Square, was dedicated on November 11th, 1948. Raised to “honor the men and women of Rutherford county who served our country in World Wars I and II” and “dedicated to the everlasting memory of those who made the supreme sacrifice in those great conflicts for the freedom of all men throughout the world,” this monument was erected by Post 4575 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the nation’s oldest and largest veterans organization. On May 31, 1977, the Murfreesboro War Memorial was rededicated by the Bob Brown Post 16 of the American Legion. Two additional plaques were added at this rededication, upon which are inscribed the names of fallen veterans of the Vietnam and Korean wars who hailed from Murfreesboro.
