Franklin's Historical

Named after Benjamin Franklin, Franklin was a peaceful town until the Civil War. The town was torn apart by the Battle of Franklin, one of the bloodiest of the war. Franklin carried on, though, and after more than a hundred years of rebuilding, it has reclaimed its former glory and then some. Still mindful of its history Franklin is peppered with Civil War sites, museums, and a variety of homes dating back to Civil War times and before. These include the Carnton Plantation and the Lotz House, two residences converted into museums so that no one in Franklin forgets the history of the town.

Heritage Ball

Locals work hard to keep up a sense of Franklin's history, and every year their hard work is rewarded with the Heritage Ball. Every year the Heritage Foundation, a local group dedicated to historic preservation, throws a black-tie gala to both honor those who have given their time and money and also to help raise funds for the Heritage Foundation. The Heritage Ball and Heritage Foundation have helped raise enough money over the years to preserve the Carnton Plantation, a cultural touchstone of the Franklin community as well as other historical sites around town.

Parks & Greenways

Franklin is set on being as green as possible in terms of both sustainability and urban forestry, and it shows. The town has a number of gorgeous public parks and tree-lined avenues, all maintained by the city's professional arborist. The city has a number of trails running within and between its parks. This includes a system of greenways that cover the city, and that are always being developed for pedestrian and bike traffic. Franklin also has no shortage of historic parks that document many sites from the Civil War and other points in Franklin's history.
