Franklin’s Acquisition

Carter House, FranklinCarter House, FranklinFranklin’s Charge, Inc. and the Battle of Franklin Trust have announced a purchase agreement to acquire more than two additional acres across the street, adjacent to the Carter House. The property is ground that was originally the Carter family garden on Columbia Pike. The $2.8 million contract allows Franklin’s Charge and Battle of Franklin Trust one year to raise the necessary funds to complete the transaction. With this acquisition, nearly 20 acres in downtown Franklin has been saved, and will collectively represent one of the largest urban public Civil War attractions in the nation.

This property, along with others on both sides of the street, will be interpreted with the help of a partnership between Franklin’s Charge, Inc. and the Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area.
