Carter House - Real Franklin Haunt
- 1140 Columbia Ave
- Franklin, TN
- (615) 791-1861
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.

Yes, this property is as haunted as the Carnton Plantation. I believe the spirits here are unsettled and crave attention.Posted 10/22/18
My first visit!
We decided to do a spontaneous adventure and we ended up at the carter house. I've had multiple experiences with ghosts or spirits in my past. We took the tour and the tour guide of course talked about the civil war. I was standing in the living room/bedroom and my heart started pounding and I'm not doing anything. I know that sometimes spirits affect your body or emotions some way. I didn't think much about it. We walked into the next room (the parlor) and I just felt sad. When we walked outside I felt fine and my heart wasn't hurting anymore. When we went to the basement the tour guide was talking about the carters son that died in the parlor and i knew that I most likely felt residual energy possibly. I knew nothing about his house except the bullet holes in the house. Sorry if my story wasn't super crazy experience but its entertaining I guess lol. But I did feel like someone was watching in the house.Posted 6/23/18
