The historic town of Franklin is a short drive from the neighborhood. The 15-block downtown district has restored buildings with over 70 retail shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Three major historic landmarks from the Civil War are located in Franklin.
The famous “Battle of Franklin” was fought on the grounds of the Carter and Lotz houses. 1,000 bullet holes remain in the walls of the Carter House. The Lotz House across the street has bullet holes and damage from cannon balls. Both homes became hospitals after the Civil War. Bloodstains remain on the wood floors of these houses from surgeries.
The Carter House is a small house built in 1830. The house has simple furnishings from the Civil War area. Visitors can tour the cellar, which provided a hiding place during the war for the Carter and Lotz families. The Lotz House contains artifacts, Victorian furniture and other home furnishings from the Civil War era. It is known as one of the finest private collections of antiques of American Victorian furniture in the Southeast.
The sprawling, historic 1825 Carnton Plantation is located outside of Franklin and was the home of Carrie McGavock, the “Widow of the South.” The two-acre graveyard for 1,500 Confederate soldiers was donated by the McGavock family and tended by Carrie McGavock until her death in 1905.
