The house is interesting as a Civil War battle site. The contents are not original to the house, but beautiful. Guide too talkative-hardly took a breath.

The tour guide made the Civil War history of this house and its founding family come alive. Welcoming questions from the tourists, the guide helped us get a sense of the impact that the Battle of Franklin had on citizens during the most divisive times in our country's history. Seeing the canon balls marks and blood stains on the floors... More

Visiting Lebanon TN for Anniversary Weekend.....made stop off at the Lotz house on a recommendation from friends. Excellent choice. The tour guide was a wonderful southern young man and very knowledgeable about the house and the family that had resided there. Hands on history is so much more fun than book learning! Highly recommend....

We purchased the value when visiting the Carter House. The ticket price included a guided tour of The Lotz house. My 9 year old girl and 12 year old son, both of whom typically are not interested in history, were fascinated with the story of the family and the antiques. I would highly recommend visiting and plan to take friends... More

The Lotz House was located in the line of fire during the battle of Franklin in the Civil War. It sustained heavy damage, some of which can still be seen today (blood stains on the hardwood floor, cannon ball scorch marks in the flooring, etc). The house itself is not particularly large or beautiful and much of it's original structure... More

In town to visit Nashville and drove down to Franklin- so glad we did! The Lotz House provides a great Civil War experience and the impact of the war on the Lotz family. Our tour guide, Sam, was awesome!

My 15 y/o son and I both really enjoyed this tour! Our tour guide Robert did an excellent job. He was knowledgable and enthusiastic about the Civil War history associated with the home, the Lotz family and Franklin. He was also helpful with recommendations and directions to other sites in the area. It cost ten dollars per person but we... More
