FRANKLIN, Tenn. — The Lotz House announced they will host three evening ghost tours of the house on Halloween slated for Saturday, October 31 at 5:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Guests will have the chance to experience the Civil War spirits and other unexplained phenomenon that are said to haunt the historic home. The Lotz House has been featured on the Travel Channel’s “Haunted Live” as well as Travel Channel’s “The Most Terrifying Places in America.” 


Lotz House Executive Director Thomas Cartwright said, “Ghost Tours this year has been really popular so we decided to host three tours for Halloween. Visitors enjoy hearing true stories of ghost encounters in the house from years ago to present day. They find the recounts intriguing and its an experience they can’t get anywhere else.” 


At the center of the gruesome Battle of Franklin, the Lotz House witnessed untold bloodshed. The traumatic past and the unexplained phenomena seen by many of its visitors led the home to be dubbed the “Second-Most Terrifying Place in America” by the Travel Channel. These strange happenings include a woman crying out for a loved one, a little girl staring out the window and ordinary items that just won’t stay put.   


The guided 90-minute ghost tour will be held Friday, October 23 and Saturday, October 24 at 6:00 and then there will be three tours on Halloween at 5:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Saturday, October 31.
