The doors are always open. If you want a quiet place to sit peacefully between services, this is it.

We were delighted with an impromptu... More

Easy to get to and never crowded. Has a long time history in Franklin. Just up the street from Sweet Cici's. Get a frozen treat and take a walk to see this gem.

St. Paul's Church has extensive pre Civil War history. It looks nice, the church doors are always open meaning that not only are you welcome during any of the multiple services, but you can spend time in the church when you need it. The Church is all-inclusive, the congregation feels that anyone is always welcome to walk in, meditate or... More

Lovely old church and grounds (cemetery) where several Confederate luminaries are interred. Church is closed except for special occasions but still interesting to see the original architecture.
