Carter House - Real Franklin Haunted Place
The Carter House was built by Fountain Branch Carter in 1830 and is now a Civil War Museum. The house lies in the middle of the Battle of Franklin, one of the worst Civil War battles. It was used by Union troops as a command post, while the Carter family hid in the basement as the sounds of cannons and gunfire surrounded them. Another member of the Carter family, son Todd Carter had been in the battle. He had been found on the battlefield but died 2 days later in the house. The house is rumored to be haunted by Tod Carter and his sister Annie. Witnesses have seen spirits, a statue jumping up and down, tugging at their clothing and unexplained voices.
