Carter House

If you're interested in the history of the second Battle of Franklin, you may be interested in visiting the Carter House State Historic Site, located at 1140 Columbia Avenue in Franklin, Tennessee. This historic site is known for being the site where the Carter family hid during the second battle. Visitors can tour the house's basement and learn about the house's storied past. This is a must-see for Franklin history buffs.

The house was built by Fountain Branch Carter in 1830. Originally, the home included a farm office, smokehouse, kitchen, and the largest cotton gin in Williamson County. The house was intact during the Second Battle of Franklin. The house and surrounding buildings were used as a field hospital for both Confederate and Federal soldiers. This historic home is open to the public every day. Its history makes it an important stop on any trip to Franklin. (Check out Windstead Hill Park.)

The Carter House once had seven slave cabins, but now there is only one. This cabin was transported from another location in Williamson County. Nevertheless, it represents the average slave cabin in the area. Visitors can take a tour of the house, which lasts approximately an hour. Once inside, you can stroll the grounds and view the original items. In particular, you can look for bullet holes in the parlor room. Once you've had your fill of history, head over to the museum to take your kids for a free, family-friendly visit.
