MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – The “Experience Tennessee” bus takes a trip April 7 to the historical areas of Murfreesboro. Guests will travel to other historic areas of Rutherford County, and learn why one of the most significant Civil War battles took place there.
Reduced early bird rates are available through March 7.
The single day trip will depart from downtown Nashville. Participants will learn about the dramatic Battle of Stones River, visit the historic downtown square and courthouse and much more. The Murfreesboro Courthouse is one of the oldest county seats in Tennessee, and the revived downtown offers many shops and restaurants today. The National Battlefield at Stones River includes a National Cemetery and beautiful scenery.
The “Experience Tennessee” bus trips are some of the most anticipated adult and family programs the Tennessee State Museum offers. Participants are given behind-the-scenes tours and specialized presentations by experts as well as local historians. Each trip includes a stop for some local cuisine or just good ole home cooking.
