MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Habitat for Humanity of Rutherford County is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Earlier this week the charity dedicated its 125th home on Lynch Drive in Murfreesboro.
WMOT News recently had a chance to visit with Ruby Akridge. The Murfreesboro native moved into her Habitat built home in 1992.
Like every Habitat home owner, Ackridge wasn’t simply handed a set of house keys. She was required to work alongside the volunteers building her home...labor Habitat calls “sweat equity.”
