This was the observation location of Gen Hood as he watched his troops deploy and attack the Federal forces defending Franklin. A number of state monuments are located here as well as information about the battle.

Took our grandsons (12 and 16 from NYC). Visiting Winstead Hill before taking the walking tour helped them see the field that was marched and fought before getting to the Carter House and the Cotton Gin. Lovely place to walk the dog ON LEASH.

Although I was pleased to see, and appreciate, the historical monuments and explanations, I visited Winstead Hill Park on a near-daily basis March-November 2016 for walking purposes. The walking loop to the north of the monuments takes you into a pretty meadow and copses of...More
