Carter House

This 1830 house and its buildings hold more than a thousand bullet holes, received during the Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864. In fact, the farm office on the property is known to be the most bullet-damaged building still standing from the Civil War. Some of the bloodiest hand-to-hand combat took place right here, as the Carter family hid in the basement for safety. Today, the Carter House, its buildings, and eight acres of its property are preserved and open to the public, including a fascinating museum, gift shop and guided tours.
