Old Tennessee Trail

The Old Tennessee Trail is a scenic drive, rich in history, beautiful scenery, and southern charm. It begins in historic Franklin, where you’ll explore small towns, historic markets, and scrumptious dining spots.

Stand where Confederate General John Bell Hood watched his troops march to the dramatic Battle of Franklin; run your hand over Civil War bullet holes that still mark the trail’s many Antebellum homes. This is the story of Middle Tennessee, from Native Americans to west-bound settlers, Civil War soldiers and beyond.
