Mark your calendars now for Main Street’s elegant Evening on Main, scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 16, from 5 to 7 p.m. Those attending the organization’s fundraiser will enjoy delicious refreshments and drink while strolling through the lovely East Main Street home of gracious hosts Beth and Tommy Throneberry.

Evening on Main benefits the Main Street program, which is charged with the mission of maintaining, enhancing and promoting Murfreesboro’s historic downtown. “Main Street is working hard to enhance the quality of life for our community through its work as cheerleader, recruiter, consultant, designer, event planner and economic development engine for the core of our city,” says Main Street Executive Director Kathleen Herzog. “Your friendship and financial support are necessary for Main Street as we plan for our future and preserve our rich heritage.”

The Throneberry's moved to 930 East Main in October 2013, after living on Tennessee Boulevard for 22 years. The home was built in 1998 by W. Henry and the late Kay Huddleston.

The two-story, Georgian-style residence is 5,200 square feet with four bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths. “The home has a very nice entrance, with a lot of marble,” owner Beth Throneberry describes. She adds that the home features hardwood flooring, a marble master bath and a kitchen with white cabinetry and contrasting black countertops. The formal dining room boasts handpainted canvas wallpaper.

“It’s just a perfect location,” Throneberry says, “and it’s great for entertaining. We have an extensive bar. As I said, it’s great for entertaining!” She says that when her family purchased the house, it was “lightly lived in. All we had to do was touch up the colors the Huddlestons had already chosen.”

The front lawn features a circular drive to the front door, protected by a white Georgian portico. The back lawn is “spacious and shady with a nice back porch and comfortable furniture,” Throneberry said. “It’s very private.”

Private, that is, until Evening on Main patrons take advantage of this opportunity to have a look, both outside and inside. “It is our pleasure to host this,” she adds. “We’re fans of downtown living. We walk up and down the sidewalk all the time, stopping to talk to other friends who live downtown and walk regularly as well.”

Reservations for Evening on Main are suggested but not required. For more information, call (615) 895-1887 or email mstmurf@bellsouth.net. Donations will be accepted at the door. All donations to Main Street are tax-deductible.
