Tennessee Community
With a population of over 250 thousand, Rutherford County is easily one of the largest counties in the greater Nashville area.  Murfreesboro is the sixth-largest city in the state, and the largest city in Rutherford County by far.  It has a population of over 100 thousand all by itself.  It is home to Middle Tennessee State University, which has the largest undergraduate population in Middle Tennessee.  Several Civil War battles were fought on the city's soil, including the Battle of Stones River, which is now a designated National Battlefield site.  

Other major communities in Rutherford County are, Smyrna, La Vergne,  and Eagleville. Smyrna is, according to a recent article in U.S. News & World Report, among the “Top 10 Best Places to Retire.”  The town is home to Nissan's first U.S. automotive manufacturing plant, which recently celebrated its 25th year in production.  It is also home to the Sam Davis Home, a historic landmark named after a 21 year old who was killed for not giving up information that could compromise the Confederates.

La Vergne is the northernmost  city in Rutherford County with roughly 30 thousand people. It will get its first major retail development by 2009, The Shoppes of La Vergne, a $20 million development.  Eagleville is the smallest incorporated municipality in the county.  It hosts the oldest horse show in Tennessee in June.  It also hosts an antique tractor show in September every year.

Top employers in Rutherford County are Nissan Motor Mfg., Rutherford County  Schools, Middle Tennessee State University, Bridgestone/Firestone, and Ingram Books.
