Tennessee State Historian Van West and Rutherford County Director of Archives John Lodl , recently took city planners on a guided tour of the area of Murfreesboro known as the “Historic Bottoms,” a low-lying industrial area settled by freed slaves following the Civil War. The area is currently the focus of a 10-month land-use study by Ragan-Smith Associates for historic, cultural and commercial redevelopment.
