Rutherford County

Something for Everyone
Whether your passion is high-octane racing, an epic Civil War battle, the serenity of antebellum mansions, or strolling beside a lazy river, Rutherford County has something for you. Our area is rich with significant Civil War sites, including Stones River National Battlefield, along with many other historic attractions. See how the Tennesseans of 2 centuries ago lived, at Cannonsburgh Village, a living history museum of early Southern life, or tour the circa-1859 Rutherford County Courthouse.
Kids love the Discovery Center, a hands-on museum for children with 20 acres of outdoor wetlands to explore, and fitness buffs and nature lovers alike delight in our greenway system, which includes miles of trails that border both Stones River and Lytle Creek.
