Murfreesboro Makes Money Magazine's Top 100

9 posts in this topic


Congrats to Murfreesboro. I found it interesting that Franklin wasn't even considered a city this year when we made the list last year. They must have changed the methodology on us...

Here is another article from the same magazine that mentions the rebirth of Nashville.

The news of Murfreesboro making this list is wonderful, and I think the city truly earned it's spot there. We've experienced strong growth, have a great citizenry, and are located in a beautiful part of the country. The future truly looks bright for Murfreesboro.

LOL!! Good job Murfreesboro. Now lets tear down another historic structure for another 100 lot subdivison!!

Frankliner, it is becasue Murfreesboro is trying to be like you guys in Williamson County really, really hard. And they are on track to do so, with less amount of rich people though. Rutherford THINKS it has money in it like Williamson, but it doesn't. LOL!!!

END OF JOKING. Sorry.

Seriously though, this is cool.

Actually, there is some truth to that. Murfreesboro does have the money, it's called more residents. The only problem though, may be enough of them to support new Franklin-like developments. It is sad to hear of truly historic homes being demolished for suburban developments. Now I wouldn't mind to see the metal warehouses and shacks destroyed downtown, but two and three story pre-20th century homes that could easily become bed and breakfasts or hotels? Sad. I hope Rutherford/Murfreesboro get their act together. The area has much potential, and I do think the Gateway project is a step in the right direction.

I feel like i've earned the role of the cynical one here, so here it goes...this list is cute, but means absolutely nothing. Many of these "cities" are only cities in that they are groupings of population and little else. It is clear what the priorities of this list's authors are. Also, this list fluctuates wildly from year to year. It's just a meaningless list. If it did mean something however, i'd be the first one cheerleading for Murfreesboro.

I agree... I hate lists, especially those from Money and Fortune magazines. If you notice, they seem to pick "idyllic" small cities somewhere in the north where nobody would live by choice.

It's just a meaningless list.

It may prove to be a meaningless honor for Murfreesboro, yet I'm glad we're on the list anyhow. Who knows, it may yet serve to draw new citizens and businesses to our city, and that would be a worthwhile thing indeed!
