Grave Matters Tours

October 26, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

$5 – $20

Once a year, costumed reenactors portray some of the cemeteries’ most interesting people. Join us on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 7:00-9:00pm for a walk through history. We also offer guided tours Thursday evenings at 5:00pm.

Either way, you’ll meet the Carter father and son whose home is the epicenter of the Battle of Franklin. You’ll be introduced to the little-known but still fascinating two Georges, Grummond and Cuppett, who fought on opposite sides of the War, and are remembered for different reasons. Brave teenager Fannie Courtney, a Union sympathizer who tended to the Union wounded at First Presbyterian Church will tell her story (you won’t believe the rest of it). Not all the stories are Civil War-related. You won’t want to miss the grave of Anarchy Cowles, a freed slave, or the marker of the two infant Marr sisters, whose short, tragic lives are commemorated by a broken shaft. Not to be missed is the grave of the Unknown Civil War soldier whose remains were uncovered at a Franklin construction site in 2009 and later reinterred at Rest Haven.

Bring a flashlight and wear closed-toed shoes. The cemetery is grassy with no paths and has a very uneven surface. Not recommended for wheelchair or walker users. 

Cost: $20/adults. $10/teens $5/kids under 13

Duration: 90 minutes

Length: 4 Acres

Where to meet: 4th Avenue North and North Margin Street
