FRANKLIN, TN — Architect Daniel Woods said he plans on buying a six-bay self-serve carwash, only to tear it down and put up seven  living units, The Tennessean reported.

The April 17 story said the land holds historical significance as it was the site of a battle on Nov. 30, 1864, when Union and Confederate soldiers battled their first fight. Approximately 8,500 men were killed.
