Notes: Formerly known as Williston, Pooltown, & Pleasant Hill. In 1844 named in honor of John L. Murray, U.S. Congressman. Note: Ordinance 2017-1727 cites "stove legs" as corners for the survey. According to a local surveyor-historian, when a woodstove company closed in the Murray area, several surveyors acquired the legs that would have been welded onto the stoves. The surveyors then used the stove legs as permanent markers for survey corners.The length of the stove leg is buried; the top of the stove leg is flush with the ground's surface.
