About Elizabeth Knizley

Why Elizabeth Knizley chose Tennessee

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

Great

  • 4 of 5

We were staying in Franklin for our daughter's wedding. Great location. Loved the two large baths. Only issue was the parking. We were unsure if grassy area to the right of the home was a driveway.

Homey Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Located on a quiet street just a few blocks from historic downtown Franklin, the home provides all the nice touches for a comfortable stay. The back deck with grill and a side screened porch makes relaxing outside a pleasure. My favorite experience was listening to all the delightful song birds. The kitchen is well equipped with condiments and everything needed for preparing meals. Comfortable leather rocker/recliner in the living room. Satellite TV and internet. The bathrooms are huge and recently updated. The feel of the home is of coming home to visit grandma as it has classic wooden floors and a few antique furniture pieces. The owner was quick to respond to any questions or concerns. I would recommend the property as a cozy and convenient choice.

Battlefield Cottage--Vintage

  • 5 of 5

Staying last week in Franklin in this quaint little cottage was a wonderful experience. It was almost like I had stepped back in time when I first set foot inside. While the bathrooms had been added and were modern, the remainder of the cottage reminded me of when I stayed at my grandparents/aunts and uncles homes. It was comfortable, clean and the location was quiet and within walking distance to downtown. My sons and I did a lot of walking and exploring while in Franklin and the surrounding area. We loved it and I highly recommend it to anyone. Oh and it is pet friendly even though I didn't take my furbabies this time. Maybe on my next trip. Thank you for the memories.

Great property close to downtown Franklin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a week with our 2 small kids while vacationing in the Nashville area. Upon arrival we found everything exactly as expected from the description - clean, neat & attractive. The floor plan works very well for a family with children, or 2 individuals or 2 couples - plenty of space and privacy with the double masters. Plumbing, laundry & heat all worked well. Fenced in yard and back patio/deck were an added plus. Excellent service by homeowner, would highly recommend this property and would stay there again if in the area!
