Very cool place tons of history dating back to the civil war. $5 per person cant go wrong. People state it is haunted not sure about that. Spent 2 hours there looking at all the house has from the original owners very cool.

Really cool place just outside of Bowling Green in Franklin. It’s a supposed “haunted” home due to the civil war activities that took place there. Neat history, tickets are $5 each to walk through the house. Open on certain days and time. Caretakers smoke in home but did stop when requested. They really know this house and are super friendly. If you love history this is your place, if you’re interested in paranormal this is your place.

This wonderful house is full of history. For five dollars you can walk through the entire house. Lots of artifacts and history. The mannequins were just a little creepy. They have camera's set up to catch the paranormal activity in the house. You can stay as long or as short you want. The grounds are nice to see too. The summer kitchen, family gravesite and slave graveyard. Worth the time.

I stumbled across this unique house by accident. It has a fascinating story. It is in process of getting going - but it has a ways to go.

First Suggestion - de clutter the furnishings.

2nd Suggestion - the lady inside who works there - smokes in the house. Take it outside.

I meant to stop and had been following signs. I was past it before I saw it and decided to keep going as it looked run down. Might be a good stop but I won't' know this trip.
