Built in 1830 by Fountain Branch Carter, the Carter House, now a Civil War museum, lay in the middle of the Battle of Frnaklin, one of the worst Civil War battles. It was used by Union troops as a command post, while the Carter family hid in the basement amid the sounds of gunfire and cannons. Sadly, another of the Carter clan, son Tod Carter, had been in the battle. He was found on the battlefield but died in the house 2 days later. The house is said to be haunted by Tod Carter and his sister Annie. Witnesses have described apparitions, a statue jumping up and down, tugging at their clothing, and unexplained voices.
