The Lotz House was a fantastic home to visit. It is a beautiful home that was built by its original owner, a master woodworker. In addition to touring the home and learning about the family who lived there, we also learned extensively about the Civil War battle that took place in Franklin, as well as what life was like in...

Too many sites around middle TN focus on the Civil War so I enjoyed it not being overly wrapped up in the Civil War. Grace Ann provided a very good tour and was very knowledgeable about the Lotz family and the times in which they lived at the house. The only downside was that 99% of the artifacts did not... More

The Lotz House tour was a fantastic step back to the civil war! Our tour guides for the House tour and the battle field tour were informative, polite and had all the answers to our questions. The Lotz House itself was so well preserved that I felt like I was in the 1860s. The story of the Lotz and Carters... More

It can be hard to get excited about these historical tours at such a young age, but what an awesome experience these two tours were! Between Thomas' exemplary recounts of the actual battles and JT's imagery that made you really feel as if you were there, this is by far the best tour I have ever been on! My fellow... More

We've lived here for 18 years so when Lotz House opened we were delighted to add this to our "things to do" when people visit us. It takes about 45 minutes to go through and is very interesting without being so overwhelming that you get worn out like some of the tours. There is a very nice little pub--Bunganut Pig... More

Staying in Franklin for a week on vacation, we were just looking for something to do and found a groupon for the Lotz House. Pulling in, it was much smaller than expected but once inside it is actually deceptively large. Being the last tour of the day ours still lasted about 90 minutes and it was Fantastic. Our guide TJ?... More

It was a very interesting look into one family's life and experience during a pivotal time in history. The tour focused largely on the family itself and houses an impressive antique collection. The three main houses/field hospitals of the Franklin battle sell a group ticket, if going to one go ahead and just do them all, all three are linked... More

This was part of a tour we went on in Franklin, Tn. The tour guide was a very knowledgable volunteer. He brought the battle of Franklin to life in our minds and told of the families experiences both before, during and after the battle. He showed where the cannon balls had hit the house and repairs had been made. The... More

Really enjoyed this tour, our guide JT was enthusiastic and informative. You can tell the house means a great deal to him. The home itself is beautiful and filled with lovely antiques.
