Murfreesboro Tornado Of 1913


  We all remember the Good Friday tornado that devastated Murfreesboro a few years ago but did you know about the tornado that hit the public square 100 years ago on March 21, 1913? Luckily there was nobody killed. The tornado occurred at 2:00 A.M.and seriously injured a man sleeping in a livery stable on the North side of the square on Walnut St. The tornado cut a swath of destruction 150 yards wide. Part of the clock on the Courthouse Cupola was later found in Lebanon.
