How many homes or structures exist in Franklin today that were here in 1864?

I count 28 or 29 in downtown Franklin and add two more if you include the Truett House and Jasmine Grove. then you could add Wyatt hall and Creekside inside the Mack Hatcher.

Your favorite antebellum home in Franklin or Williamson County: no longer standing?  Still standing?

Everbright , Westview and the McNutt House are no longer standing. Clouston Hall and Carter House in Franklin.

    My family used to own Clouston Hall when I was a child. We went every summer and stayed a few weeks. I would love some history of this house. I know there have been some strange things there……I saw some recent pictures of it and it has lost its charm. Too new looking, so sad. Love that old house, wish it were still in the family. Lost it to alcohol, and someone who was deceitful.
