Bradley Academy has a rich history, originally built in 1806 as the first school for the education of white males only. In 1884, the school began admitting African American students, both male and female. The current structure, built in 1917, opened as the new school for African American students in 1918. Today, the Bradley Academy Museum and Cultural Center is managed by Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation.
