Bradley Academy was built in 1806 as the first school for education of white males only. In 1884, African American students, males and females, were allowed to attend school. The current structure was built in 1917 and opened as the new school for African American students in 1918. Today, Bradley Academy Museum and Cultural Center houses an original classroom, a Civil War exhibit, and an Early Settlers for the City of Murfreesboro and the County of Rutherford exhibit.
