Carter House

A top destination in Franklin for Civil War buffs and fans of American History, the Carter House is found just off of Columbia Avenue and West Fowles Street in middle Tennessee. The Carter House holds a major piece of Civil War history – in the basement is where the Carter family hid waiting for the Second Battle of Franklin to end.

Managed by the Battle of Franklin Trust, the Carter House is found on the Carnton Plantation. At the Carter House, which as been beautifully restored, you can enjoy guided tours, shop the gift shop, and even use the marvelously maintained grounds to host your wedding. 

Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum

Since 1967, the museum has been home to "America's Music" – and the $37-million building opened in 2001 as a key fixture in the Nashville skyline. Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum houses an impressive collection of video clips, recordings exhibits, a museum store, on-site café, and live performances.

Fort Granger

Offering an array of unmatched Franklin views, Fort Granger is a top, historical destination in middle Tennessee.

Make your next trip into Franklin memorable with a tour of the once hallowed grounds. 

Today at Fort Granger, you'll still find the original trenches dug by Civil War soldiers. Fort Granger was a major part of the Battle of Franklin – one of the deadliest in all of the war. Totaling nearly 20 acres in overall area, Fort Granger was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. 

Franklin Theatre

Just off of Main St. and 5th Ave. in downtown Franklin, discover the Franklin Theatre on your next visit into middle Tennessee. First opened in 1937, the Franklin Theatre has played host to a number of headline performers over the years. In 2007, time finally caught up to the historic Franklin Theatre and the doors were closed. 

In 2010, the Franklin Theatre was re-opened after tireless work from the Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County. Nearly $8 million was used to transform the Franklin Theatre into a well appointed, top performance venue in Franklin. Along with live performances from music and dance, the Franklin Theatre also screens movies.

The Grand Ole Opry

The number-one attraction in Music City, the Grand Ole Opry is set in Nashville, and honors country music's history.

"Country's most famous stage" is now a live-entertainment sensation with beginnings in 1925, from humble roots as a radio broadcast. Each week, Ryman is packed with fans enjoying the live show – in addition to the millions of people watching on TV and listening to the radio.
