(MURFREESBORO) It's hard to imagine that 35-years have passed since the Main Street Program stirred the excitement of downtown business owners and a passion to renovate the structures in the uptown area to their original beauty. Main Street Murfreesboro celebrated three and a half decades Tuesday with its Annual Meeting at the Carriage Lane Inn, 337 East Burton Street.

Honors for the Downtown Business of the Year went to Lacey Garrett and Kirby Dudley at the Garage Barr + Bike, a woman's fitness center at the corner of South Church at Vine.


Downtown Design Award

The Downtown Design Award was presented to Roger and Kimberly Hopkins, who re-imagined and renovated the former phone company and medical clinic at 527 North Maple Street. Roger introduced the new tenants . . .
