You may have seen the story on the Jenkins House in Murfreesboro, Tn in the CWI news section.
The Home was used as a hospital by both sides during the battle of Murfreesboro / Stones River Dec 31 1862- Jan 2 1863
Well here is a update on the once grand Old House.
Yesterday I received a Email by Kay Morrow of the "Save the Jenkins House Preservation Group" Stating that the members of the group would meet the (City Manager for Murfreesboro) Roger Haley to discuss a proposal.
The proposal being that the city help purchase the house, and change the zoning from commercial to historical. While the group creates an association to restore the house to help pay for the cost,
Less than 24 from Kay's email I received the following this morning
It looks like the City of Murfreesboro "government" and who ever else was involved were starting to worry that momentum to save the beloved old house was building and desided to destroy it before things got to far out of there control.
Another peice of history lost forever...
