The Lotz House is TripAdvisor’s No. 1 rated attraction in Franklin. Lotz House is located in the heart of downtown Franklin at “ground zero” for the Battle of Franklin, which was a pivotal battle in the Civil War on November 30, 1864. The house was built in 1858 by German immigrant Johann Albert Lotz. By trade, Mr. Lotz was a master carpenter and a piano maker. His home, served as his “show house” to demonstrate his carpentry work to potential clients interested in hiring him for his services. There are also several battle scars including the charred rounded indention in the wood flooring where a cannonball flew through the roof, the second story bedroom and landed on the first floor and rolled. Incredible antiques throughout including John Henry Belter furnishings, Old Paris Porcelain and relics from the battlefield.
