Our guide was very informative, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic! Anyone interested in history would enjoy this tour. The craftsmanship of the home is amazing! The only downside was that no pictures were allowed on the inside.

Thomas was a great tour guide. Very passionate and excited about The Lotz House and family. Will definitely visit again especially if Thomas is my guide.

Interesting civil war era property. Tour was only about 6 rooms but the tour guide- Thomas- made the history come alive with his telling of the events of the family who first resided there.

Great tour! Jean gave us a (more than) 1 hour narrative of the Battle of Franklin, TN and the history of the Lotz family - she made history come alive. Captivated my 17 year old son as well. HIGHLY recommend.
