Oaklands was originally built around 1818 on the property of Dr. James Maney and his wife, Sallie Hardy Murfree. Sallie inherited the property from her father, Lt. Col. Hardy Murfree, for whom Murfreesboro is named. As the Maney family prospered, the original two-room, brick house was expanded and transformed to the spacious Italianate mansion of a 1500-acre plantation and one of the most elegant homes in Middle Tennessee. Oaklands Historic House Museum, located at 900 North Maney Avenue in Murfreesboro, Tennessee is a nationally registered historic landmark that reflects a time of prosperity in the Old South, as well as the hardships suffered during the Civil War.
