Learn about the American Civil War and the significance of this historic home.

Located in the heart of Franklin, Tennessee, this Victorian-style mansion was owned by a German immigrant named Johann Albert Lotz. He was a talented woodworker and piano maker from Saxony and you will see much of his work inside the home. Notable features include the fireplace mantles and the wraparound handrail on the staircase.

During the American Civil War, this home was considered "ground zero" of the Battle of Franklin. Fearing for their lives, the Lotz family rushed to the basement of the Carter house shortly before the battle began on November 30, 1864. Their home served as a hospital for wounded soldiers on both sides for many months after the Battle of Franklin.

Ghost tours are offered here around Halloween, so consider coming in October if you are interested in taking a more spooky tour of this historic home. No matter the season, if you're visiting Franklin, Tennessee, be sure to stop by the Lotz House Museum.
