Carnton’s Behind the Scenes Tour will allow visitors to experience never before seen areas of the historic home. The tour will begin with main areas of the house, before exploring the basement, third floor and back balcony. This unique tour will be led by James Redford, who has worked at Carnton for over 20 years. By seeing rooms never before accessed by the public, guests will be able to further understand the history of the McGavock family, who was directly impacted by the Battle of Franklin and saw their home used as a field hospital for Confederate wounded.
