The boards of Franklin's Carter House (pictured here) and Carnton Plantation have joined forces to market their Civil War sites as one. One of their goals is a linkup with big-name national organizations.
"Together, The Carter House and Historic Carnton Plantation will have a more powerful significance. This venture has the potential of joining the ranks of Gettysburg, Richmond and Charleston as more local battle sites are reclaimed for public access by such groups as the City of Franklin, The Heritage Foundation and Franklin’s Charge. Certainly, the opportunity to affiliate with the National Park Service and the National Heritage Area are greatly enhanced by this joint venture."
