Lotz to see at Lotz museum

Robert at Lotz museum is a wealth of civil war information. The house is full of amazing woodwork, family stories and civil war history. Well worth the one hour tour.

The tour began with an explanation of the Battle of Franklin given by a docent who made you feel you were there. Then we had a tour of the house by another docent who again made you feel you knew the Lotz family. Thoroughly enjoyed it - great for history buffs and anyone with a curiosity about the Civil War...

Toured Lotz House on Saturday Aug 28th. Great tour and excellent tour guide, don't remember her name was an elderly woman did a fantastic job. If civil war interest you it is well worth the visit to all three Carnton Plantation, Carter House, and the Lotz house. All tour guides did a fantastic job.

Had a groupon for a tour of the Lotz House and was impressed with the knowledge of the tour guide and the restoration of the house to the way it was at the time of the battle. Hard to believe that is has been a residence and many different businesses during the years since the battle.

Robert was an enthusiastic guide and people had great questions that he answered. We heard and learned many interesting stories, especially what happened with the various family members after they left... More

We throughly enjoyed our tour of the Lotz House. Robert our guide was excellent! He took us outside and showed us the geography and line up of the Federal and Confederate Forces. Then we went through the house and looked at what happened. It was entertaining and informative.

Our tour guide Thomas Cartwright is one of the most knowledgeable on Civil War history we've ever met. The details and passion he shared during our tour were fascinating to all of us, ages 5–60+, and he patiently answered all of our questions. This house is a must-see for Civil War buffs.

TJ was a great tour guide. So knowledgable and excited about the subject. Both about the Builder and the damage done during the Battle of Franklin.
