Welcome to historic Franklin and the unique communities of Williamson County, Tennessee located just 20 miles south of downtown Nashville where you will enjoy a Great American Main Street experience...
The Carter House, built in 1830 by Fountain Branch Carter, was caught in the midst of the Battle of Franklin fought on November 30, 1864. Capt. Tod Carter, who grew up in the house, was involved in the battle and mortally wounded. The house and outbuildings show obvious battle damage and the site serves as a memorial to the Carter family and both Confederate and Federal soldiers. One of the outbuildings riveted with more than 1,000 bullet holes is still visible today. The Visitor’s Center includes a new video presentation, military museum and gift shop.
