Fodor's Expert Review Carnton Plantation

Franklin Educational Institution
This stunning antebellum plantation home was converted to a field hospital after the Battle of Franklin in 1864. Today, the plantation offers several different tours, including one on Thursdays that focuses on the individuals enslaved at Carnton Plantation and how emancipation changed their lives. Be sure to explore the grounds after your visit. In addition to the house, there are gardens, several outbuildings, and a Civil War cemetery.
