Founder, Franklin on Foot

Visitors of all ages have enjoyed my guided walking tours of historic Franklin, Tennessee since 1997. I have a law degree, but history is my passion, and there’s no better place than Franklin to pursue this interest. From the original Franklin city tour, I’ve developed crime, Civil War, ghosts, cemetery, children’s tours and even food tours, all within Franklin’s historic center. I’ve also written two books on Franklin, and am working on the third one.

Visitors often tell me, “I can really tell you love what you do. ” And I do! And I love to share it with visitors through storytelling. I really believe there’s no better way to experience a place than on a guided walking tour. . . and I hope you’ll join me on mine.
