Nashville Area Haunted Walking Tours

The best nighttime walking tours that combine “well-documented accounts” about the ghosts & haunted places in Franklin and Nashville, Tennessee:


#1 –  Haunted Franklin Ghost Tours

“Lynchings, public whippings and hangings, street corner shootings and assorted “activities of the night” are all part of the city’s past. Many buildings served as hospitals following the Battle of Franklin, and some of them reportedly have strange visitors from time to time.”

  • Dates: April thru November
  • Cost: $18 for adults; $10 ages 6 to 13
  • Length: 90 minutes

 I’ve done this tour a couple of times with different people. It’s always been an enjoyable time.

#2 – Ghost Tours of Carnton Plantation

Carnton Plantation Ghost Stories - True Tales of the Unexplained From Tennessee's Most Haunted Civil War House by Lochlainn Seabrook“Carnton, often called the most haunted building in Tennessee, was used as a field hospital after the Battle of Franklin. Hundreds of wounded men were brought into the house and many died while there. Confederate cemetery tours may also be included.”

  • Cost: $20 per person

 This one is hit or miss. They are constantly changing their website — so it’s difficult to stay on top of the dates for their tours each year.
