The Insider's Guide to Franklin Tour
In addition to our Classic Franklin tour, we'll tour one of Franklin's most charming private homes where we'll meet the lively, entertaining resident from one of Franklin's oldest families. I'll make recommendations for and join you for lunch if you wish. Carnton, Carter and Lotz Houses may be added.
Our 90-minute Haunted Franklin tour covers a mere pittance of Franklin's ghost stories. We've got enough stories for at least a four-hour tour, maybe even more. You've got the time, we've got the ghosts!
“Margie took us on a 3 hour private tour of Franklin, using our minivan, to visit a number of locations around Franklin. Through her detailed stories, we could visualize the conflicts and …understand the real-world situation the soldiers and the families of Franklin must have experienced. I would highly recommend Margie’s tours”
