Nice area, lots of history. The relief map showing the Battle of Franklin under the covered shelter is interesting. Nice walking trail.

This is the location where John Bell Hood met with his generals to decide whether or not to attack Union forces at Franklin during the Civil War. There's a great bronze map helping show the items you are looking at. That was the coolest thing...More

I certainly wouldn't put this at the top of my "to visit" list but it's a quaint little park on a hill with some good Civil War history. If you're in Franklin and interested in the Civil War, I'd say it's worth taking an hour...More

There are several monuments winding up a small hill. 4 of the monuments are dedicated to the generals that were killed in the Battle of Franklin. At the top of the hill is an overlook where Hood watched his Confederate troops marching toward town. It...More

This was the observation location of Gen Hood as he watched his troops deploy and attack the Federal forces defending Franklin. A number of state monuments are located here as well as information about the battle.

Only disappointment is that the trees in front of the overlook now block the view that General Hood had when he made his fateful decision to attack the Federal entrenchments at Franklin. What must that sight have been?

I've lived in this community for years & never knew where Winstead Hill was until last month. A nondescript right off Columbia Pike (going south) after the Columbia/Mack Hatcher intersection, you can park and walk up the winding hill to a shelter from which you...More

Took our grandsons (12 and 16 from NYC). Visiting Winstead Hill before taking the walking tour helped them see the field that was marched and fought before getting to the Carter House and the Cotton Gin. Lovely place to walk the dog ON LEASH.

After you've visited Carnton, the Carter House and the Lotz House and have learned all about the Battle of Franklin, stop at Winstead hill and imagine how it might have looked 150+ years ago. It's a very peaceful place to think about the sacrifices Union...More
