  • Historical war memorial that most people don't even know is here. Easy parking and walking. Well marked and informative.
  • Great history! Most people don't know what a big deal this was.
  • There is no guide here, but seeing all the memorials to the different states shows the deep feeling of the Confederacy for their fallen soldiers. It also shows you how incredibly wide the Confederate line and the fighting was in this battle.
  • It looks like a really nice park, but I'm going to go back during the day. I went there tonight because Google said there was activity here at all hours. My husband and I go on walks at places like centenial park in Nashville at night all the time so we didn't think anything of it. There were no other cars and it was not really well lit so we decided against walking very far. We stopped to read the signs at least while we were there plus there were some pokestops and then we saw someone in the woods staring at us! Yes this sounds like some made up spooky scary story you tell to your kids at a camp fire but I am serious y'all! They started walking toward us but didn't say anything. It was really scary. So do not pay attention to the popular times thing on Google, only go here during the day for sure.
  • Put up my hammock and let the kids play in the creek. Relaxing and quiet little park.

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.
