I was greatly by the superb tour we had as part of our visit to Franklin, TN. This tour should not be missed by anyone interested in historic homes or more especially anyone wanting to know more about a very large Civil War battle.

We decided to take a trip to TN for the weekend and made our way to Franklin! Cute little town and visiting the Lotz Museum really added some history. The tour of the house was great, the guides are very knowledgable and passionate about the history of the town.

My wife and I love to visit historical sites. For our anniversary this year we visited the Lotz House, and had a wonderful time. The tour guide brought to life the days in which the house was built, and what it went through during the Battle of Franklin. It was a great combination of history and the personal story of... More

After visiting two other historic homes and in Franklin a was pleased to see a domestic family home. Delightful period laces, needlework and amazing 500 piece table setting and orginal art works add colour to family live.Talented Lotz family of clever wood carver, painter and instrument maker showcase beauty of nineteenth century family in the midst of civil war mayhem

My husband is a history buff. I like it but not usually my big thing. Our guide, Sam, was very knowledgable and very informative. He had me excited for the next story. He made the history come to life. If you are in Franklin for the civil war history, Lotz house is a must see.

Touring the Lotz House was the highlight of our week end stay in Franklin, Tenn. last week. We did not know about the Battle at Franklin during the Civil War prior to our tour. So, the tour and furnishings were not only exceptionally well done but, we gleaned valuable information about those days in history as well. The story attached... More

My family had the pleasure of taking a tour of the House with Robert, a most knowledgeble tourguide. We learned so much from the tour and have been talking about it for days. The tourguide was the most enthusiastic tourguide I have ever met, and i was a tourguide myself. Don't miss this site!

We had an excellent guide take us through the Lotz home and he provided a lot of interesting information about who the family was, their talents and what happened there during the Civil War Battle of Franklin. Mr. Lotz was a experienced wood worker and the home is full of his work. His daughter is a famous artist and her... More

My wife and I visited the Lotz House as part of a vacation trip to Nashville and Franklin. The tour was terrific. Sam gave a wonderful description of the battle scene around the Carter House and the Lotz House. Then, we went inside the house and got more information and a great tour. It was well worth the cost and... More

If you are at all interested in the US civil war and want quite human stories from a different perspective go to Lotz house, Carter house and Carnton plantation on a 3 in one ticket. Very good value and supports the good cause of preserving quatity items for posterity.
