  • Great little park with memorials and a bronze relief map showing the battle of Franklin. At the top you can observe what the southern generals observed prior to the battle. A must if you're following ...  more »

  • I was directed to stop and see this park and was pleasantly surprised. I really appreciated the fact that there is a phone number you can call and punch in the park number and there is a recording of what piece of history went down at that particular location. If you want something to fill a half hour or somewhere to walk and stretch out, this is a good place to do it.
  • Nice place to learn about the Civil War or if you are looking for some nice scenery to take pictures and walk around with family and friends.
  • A wonderful park with beautiful shaded walking trail and lots of history
  • Very nice, small park. Great for a short walk and a bit of history.
  • Historical war memorial that most people don't even know is here. Easy parking and walking. Well marked and informative.

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.
