More of Murfreesboro's history ddestroyed. This would have been the ideal place for the historical commision to have been!
I am a student at Middle Tennessee State University, and I don’t agree with tearing down Murfreesboro’s history. The Red Rose Diaries is a memorable place to people who live in Murfreesboro. Yes, I understand that the building had been abandoned and not taken care of properly. This is still not a reasonable exception for demolishment in my mind. History has not always been my favorite school subject, but at times I still find it to be very interesting. For the students of Middle Tennessee State University, having architectural history in their college hometown can come in handy. For instance, in my history class, during my last spring semester, we were able to view historical buildings of Murfreesboro for extra credit. The extra credit was based on how many we could find. Even though historical buildings still standing today have newer businesses, doesn’t require the owners to tear down the history beforehand. Just because an improver and modern business is going to take place in a town or building with history, should not always mean the building has to go down as well. With new modern buildings being demolished lately, Murfreesboro’s history is minimizing. Soon, there will not be very many or any historical building left to learn about. Once the buildings are torn down, the history will soon be forgotten as well.
