  • Very humbling to see these graves and the history around the cemetery. Brings the civil war to life and makes you think about the sacrifices many of these men made. Highly Recommended!  more »
  • This is well-kept civil war cemetery very close to downtown with several interesting monuments. For someone interested in civil war history this a good stop.  more »
  • Well maintained Confederate Cemetery, taken care of by the United Daughters of Confederate Veterans. Impressive story of how the cemetery was cared for and records maintained to make genealogy easier  more »

Where to stay in Franklin

With its brick buildings and small-town charm, the downtown area remains Franklin's biggest draw, but accommodation options here are limited to just a couple inns and bed and breakfasts. You will, however, find many national-chain hotels in the commercial district around where Murfreesboro Road meets Interstate 65. As an alternative, consider staying on a working farm just outside the town center for a more rustic experience.
