The house was very pretty and full of history. Our tour guide was easily distracted therefore our tour took longer than planned with our itinerary.

About Lotz House Museum

J.T. Thompson gets pretty excited about his own little slice of American history. He serves as the executive director of the Lotz House Museum, a commemorative collection of memorabilia and actual damage from the Battle of Franklin, a Civil War raged on November 30, 1864. At his museum, the history hardly stays confined to display cases. Instead, it is in the very woodwork.

Perhaps more compelling than the gruesome imagery or literal relics of the era, however, is the story of the Lotz family themselves, a mother, father, and three children younger than 9. They survived the battle based on their wits, turning their home into a hospital in the wake of it. While their house stands virtually unchanged to this day, their personal lives altered course in astounding ways, most noticeable in the well-documented journeys of the Lotz children.

During a two-year archeological excavation in the Lotz House cellar, more than 900 Civil War relics have been discovered. There are both Military and civilian items. The cellar tour will include a review of the excavation process, a first-hand look at some of the relics uncovered, and a description of the significance of the findings along with an interpretation of how it relates to a better understanding of the happenings inside the Lotz House following the historic battle.
