Built in 1856, the beautiful Italianate house became the permanent home to The Woman’s Club in 1916 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. At this location, a group of The Woman's Club's founding members organized and operated the first public lending library in Murfreesboro which served the community until Linebaugh Library opened in 1948.
