There are over 18,000 items on display including glassware, toasters, farm tools and equipment, period furniture, and many other items that fill the more than 17,000 square feet of display space in the historic Murfreesboro High School building.Victrola & Music Box collection

Mr. Jefcoat started his collection over 35 years ago and has continued to add selected items from far and near. The collection includes the largest exhibit in America of washing machine equipment, butter churns, irons, and “music boxes.”

Museum officials from around the world have visited Mr. Jefcoat in hopes of obtaining pieces from his collection. However, he wished to keep his collectibles together for others to enjoy. Historic Murfreesboro is indeed fortunate to have received the donation of this extensive collection of Americana.
