Battlefield Cottage was built on the actual ground where the Battle of Franklin raged.
The little brick cottage was built in the 1930's. While development of a civil war battlefield would not happen today, much of the the Franklin battlefield was lost to commercial development in the immediate decades after the war. Today, preservationists are reclaiming the historically significant sites. In 2006, land bordering the southwestern end of the Carter House property (steps from Battlefield Cottage) was acquired with help of the Civil War Preservation Trust and local organizations. This site saw tremendous fighting and was part of a brief Confederate breakthrough. After the purchase, a house, out-buildings, and a swimming pool were removed. During excavation of the original Federal entrenchments some human bones were found.
The area around the intersection of Columbia Ave. and Cleburne St. (steps from Battlefield Cottage) has seen a serious renewed effort since 2005–06 to reclaim that area for the center of a future battlefield park. The location of the former Pizza Hut is now the home to Cleburne Park. The property where the Carter Cotton Gin was located during the battle was purchased in 2005. In 2008 the property behind this location and where the Federal line crossed Columbia Ave. was purchased and in May 2010 the property east of the Gin location and where part of the Gin may have stood was also purchased. A Domino's Pizza in a small mini-mart at the northeast corner of Columbia Ave. and Cleburne St. still stands in the center of the key battlefield area, but is scheduled to be removed.
Preservation organizations plan to reconstruct both the Carter Cotton Gin and some of the Federal entrenchments before the 150th Anniversary of the battle on November 30, 2014, as part of the Civil War Sesquicentennial
Just spent two nights at the Battlefield Cottage. It was a perfect spot. We walked to downtown Franklin several times. Also walked to the close by historic battlefields. The cottage is very clean and comfortable. The owner is very easy to work with and everything was exactly as described on the VRBO website.
Charming little house in a convenient location to everything in Franklin. Quiet street. Fun vintage furnishings, nicely-stocked kitchen, dining table for 4 a plus. And the bathrooms for each bedroom, very large with sitting and dressing space, walk-in shower, impeccably clean. All in all, it worked perfectly for the 4 of us, and we would stay again. Elizabeth was quick to answer emails and very welcoming.
We stayed here during a recent short visit to Franklin and found the property to be perfect. It had everything we needed and was very convenient to Franklin and Nashville. The owner was very friendly and very responsive to our needs. Would highly recommend it!
My husband, baby and I stayed at the cottage last weekend and my parents joined us as well. Great place for 2 couples. Nice and clean with private bathrooms for each room. Elizabeth even provided a pack n play and high chair for the baby. We enjoyed walking downtown. The back patio and small screen room were nice for enjoying the weather. We hope to stay again someday soon!
This was a great house for two couples to stay at while visiting Franklin and Nashville. There are many restaurants to choose from in Franklin. It was really nice to walk through downtown Franklin and look at all the shops and decide which restaurants we wanted to try. The trip to Nashville was quick and easy. The beds were the best we had on our 10 day trip, wish we could've stayed at this house the whole time. There were a lot of little touches around the house that made it a really enjoyable time (Kleenex in the bedrooms especially when one of us had a caught a cold). I would recommend this house to anyone!!
Cute and quaint cottage! Nicely decorated and very clean. The fenced back yard is great if you are traveling with pets.
My wife loved that it was only 1 mile to Starbucks and downtown stores. I would definitely stay again next time I visit Franklin, TN
