Lotz House

The Lotz House in Franklin has been dubbed the “Second-Most Terrifying Place in America” by the Travel Channel.

To kick off the Halloween season, the Lotz House is offering evening ghost tours of the house on Friday and Saturday nights beginning Friday, Sept. 17 through mid-November. 

Guests will have the chance to experience the Civil War spirits and other unexplained phenomena that are said to haunt the historic home. The Lotz House has been featured on the Travel Channel’s “Haunted Live” as well as “The Most Terrifying Places in America.”

“Since the house opened to the public in 2008, the staff, volunteers and visitors have experienced so many unexplainable sightings, actions and paranormal activity in the house,” Lotz House Executive Director Thomas Cartwright said. “Visitors find the recounts intriguing, and it's an experience they can’t get anywhere else. We have many local residents return time and again to hear the latest unexplained activities.”

At ground zero of the Battle of Franklin, the Lotz House witnessed untold bloodshed. The traumatic past and the unexplained phenomena seen by many of its visitors led the home to be dubbed the “Second-Most Terrifying Place in America” by the Travel Channel. These strange happenings include a woman crying out for a loved one, a little girl staring out the window and ordinary items that just won’t stay put.  

The guided 90-minute ghost tour will begin at 6 p.m. every Friday and Saturday night through mid-November, including Halloween on Sunday, Oct. 31. Visitors may also make reservations for other nights. 

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 7-13. To purchase tickets, call 615-790-7190.
