The Blackman Community Club (BCC) was established in 1947 and is one of the oldest known organizations in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The club meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Currently the BCC provides a scholarship to a graduating senior who lives in Blackman and raises funds by holding the annual Blackman Barbeque.

So the community got together and started the Blackman Barbeque, which celebrated its 60th year in 2009, to raise the funds needed to build the community club.

The club is still the home of the FCE and a frequent site for family reunions and community events. And the Blackman Barbeque still benefits the community club and is possibly Rutherford County’s oldest annual event.
