Nice small park with open spaces, picnic tables, paved walking path and Civil War history. We saw deer on the walking path and plenty of birds. Walk to the top of the stairs for Civil War memorials and see the view generals had over the...More

Visiting Winstead Hill is a great way to get a feel for the area where the Battle of Franklin was fought. In a natural setting with trees, walking trail and picnic area. Restrooms too! As you climb the steps to the top of the hill...More

this is no politically correct stop-it honors the Confederate dead in the Battle of Franklin-as it should be. Use your imagination as you look out from this hill and see the Confederate generals debating the upcoming battle. You get a great sense of quiet history...More

Nice area, lots of history. The relief map showing the Battle of Franklin under the covered shelter is interesting. Nice walking trail.

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.

Only disappointment is that the trees in front of the overlook now block the view that General Hood had when he made his fateful decision to attack the Federal entrenchments at Franklin. What must that sight have been?

I've lived in this community for years & never knew where Winstead Hill was until last month. A nondescript right off Columbia Pike (going south) after the Columbia/Mack Hatcher intersection, you can park and walk up the winding hill to a shelter from which you...More
