Just 21 miles south of Nashville, Franklin is bursting with culture, Southern charm, and hospitality. Founded in 1799, Franklin has preserved its history through its beautiful Main Street—listed on the National Register of Historic Places—and a number of Civil War–era homes.
Visitors explore the history of a single night of carnage in the Civil War and the family who weathered it together within the walls of their house. Exhibits range from carefully preserved antiques of the age—some possibly used in the battle—to bloodstains indelibly sealed into the wood by a stray cannonball. Tying together objects and venue is the story of the Lotzes themselves, whose lives forever were altered by the war.
