Franklin – One Of The Best Small Towns Around

Franklin homes are nestled in an area ranked fifth for “Best Small town” in the Southern Living Readers’ Choice Awards. The January edition of Southern Living found Franklin was one of the “best” places to stay, dine, shop and visit in the South. Owning a Franklin home means you’ll enjoy living in one of the finest towns around.

The City of Franklin was founded in the 1700s by Abram Maury Jr., a State Senator. Maury, Jr. is buried with family in Founders Pointe. For the first 180 years, Franklin remained a small and tranquil county seat. The American Civil War devastated the economy in this affluent area after the Second Battle of Franklin. It took 120 years for the local economy to bounce back to pre-war status. Today Franklin transformed from a small agricultural community to a fantastic blend of commercial, residential and corporate residents.

Franklin homes are nestled amidst the abodes of many celebrities. Many famous folk hail from Franklin including singers Nick Carter, Leanne Rimes, Michael McDonald, Will Hoge, Winona Judd, Naomi Judd and Sheryl Crow, figure skater Scott Hamilton, pro baseball player Russell Branyan, head coach of the Tennessee Titans, Jeff Fisher, talk show host Dave Ramsey, actress Ashley Judd and President and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing, Michael S. Hyatt. When you purchase a Franklin home, you’re certainly in good company.

Franklin residents look forward to the annual Main Street Festival.  The event brings more than 200 crafters and artisans to four stages with two carnivals and two food courts in Franklin Square and the Downtown district. Throughout the summer, an array of entertaining family-friendly events are held at Pinkerton Park including movies on a giant inflatable screen and live concerts.
