AAA Editor Notes
Tipton-Haynes State Historic Site is 1.8 mi. s.e. to 2620 S. Roan St. In 1788 the farm was the site of the Battle of the Lost State of Franklin, which led to its collapse. The farmhouse was enlarged in the early 19th century by John Tipton Jr.; it encases a 1798 log house built by his father, Col. John Tipton. The surroundings include a large barn, corn crib, spring house, smokehouse, nature trails, period gardens and the law office of Landon Carter Haynes, a Confederate senator. There is also a visitor center with a permanent exhibit about the site.
Guided tours are available.
