The Lotz House is one of the many great historic sites around Nashville. It was home to the German immigrant Johann Albert Lotz. He was a master carpenter, piano maker, and his home served as his “show house” to demonstrate his work. In addition, The Lotz House was the epicenter of the bloodiest hours of the Battle of Franklin Trust that occurred on November 30, 1864 during The Civil War. Thousands were lost, and the home was turned into a makeshift hospital to help the injured. This year for the anniversary, The American Red Cross has teamed up with The Lotz House for a blood drive. Meaning TODAY! November 30, from 10am to 3pm, all donors will receive a voucher for a FREE tour of The Lotz House to honor the memory of the lives that were lost, and to help those in need today.
TONIGHT, November 29 at 4pm The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is kicking off the holidays with a tree lighting ceremony, and live concert!
