Biographical Note: The Rutherford County Historical Society was organized on December 17, 1970. Its primary purpose is to discover, procure, and preserve the facts, articles, or documents that relate directly or collaterally to the natural, aboriginal, civil, political, military, literary, industrial, agricultural, and ecclesiastical history of Rutherford County, Tennessee.
For over twenty years, the RCHS regularly issued numbered publications that provided historical information on many facets of Rutherford County. The Society’s newsletter, Frow Chips, has been produced since 1971 and continues to this day. The RCHS has a board of directors and general membership is open to all persons. Monthly meetings are currently held ten times a year with an annual banquet in November. For more information, visit the RCHS website.

Scope and Content: The Rutherford County Historical Society Papers, unlike the Rutherford County Historical Society Records, consists of materials collected rather than created by the RCHS. The dates range from the mid-19th century to late 20th century, with the vast majority being from the 1970s. The RCHS Papers includes publications, subject files with topics pertaining to Rutherford County and the surrounding area, scrapbooks, newspapers, memorabilia, maps, business ledgers, and Rutherford County municipal records.

Series 1: Publications
This series contains various publications collected by the RCHS with dates ranging from 1894-1982. These publications include journals, magazines, books, brochures, pamphlets, yearbooks, and phone directories, among other kinds of publications mostly having a historical relationship with Rutherford County and the Middle Tennessee area.

Series 2: Subject Files
This large series of files contains a wealth of research materials on many facets of Rutherford County history. The files have been divided into sub-series for easy reference. The sub-series are Rutherford County History, Murfreesboro History, People/Families, Cemeteries, Schools, Communities, Churches, Civil War, Tennessee/Nashville, Military, Poems/Stories, Business, Clubs & Fraternities, and National Events.

Series 3: Scrapbooks
This series contains 3 scrapbooks. The first scrapbook contains clippings from the Nashville Banner, 1911-1916, many stories by Will Allen Dromgoole, and possibly belonged to Will Allen Dromgoole herself. The second scrapbook seems to have belonged to Ellen Spence, the daughter of John Spence (Author of Annals of Rutherford County). It contains clippings of stories, poems, articles, drawings, a few needlework patterns, and references to Soule College. It dates from the late 1850’s to 1876. The third scrapbook contains various poems, songs, programs, and dates from the 1830’s.

Series 4: Newspapers
This series contains newspapers and clippings, most with a local connection. There are newspapers from Rutherford County and Nashville from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s including several copies of “Accent” which was a supplement to the Daily News Journal. The “Accents” are predominantly from 1977 and 1978 with a few issues from 1976 and 1979. There are several special themed editions of the DNJ including the “Progress Edition,” “Threshold: Rutherford Co. facing the 1980s,” “Women’s Edition,” There are a few DNJ and local paper editions from the 1951 MacArthur visit to Murfreesboro, as well as some New York newspapers surrounding the 1980 presidential election. Finally, there are copies of the DNJ from 1941 (2 of note are pre- and post-Pearl Harbor -12/3/41 and 12/10/41).

Series 5: Memorabilia
The memorabilia series contains posters, commemorative plates and decals, among other miscellaneous items.

Series 6: Maps
This series contains various highway, development, street, zoning, and business maps of Rutherford County, Lavergne, and surrounding area. Some are copies of early 19th century maps.

Series 7: Business Records
This series contains many ledger books and receipts from various businesses in or around Rutherford County. Some of the owners are known and some are not, but the dates range from 1907 to 1947.

Series 8: Municipal Records:
This series contains various records relating to Rutherford County with dates ranging from 1960 to 1984. Items include soil conservation surveys in the form of aerial photos of Rutherford County taken in 1937-38 and 1963, election returns, blueprints, and property indexes.

Associated Materials: All photographs from the RCHS Papers are stored separately in the RCHS Photo Collection and have been scanned for easier viewing. There are regular photos as well as several slide show presentations created by the RCHS, which document historical homes, businesses, and landmarks in Rutherford County. Most of the slides have been arranged in their original presentation order with accompanying scripts. There are also slides that were not received in any particular order or presentation and they have been combined to form the last group of slides.
