My sister lives just down the street from the Franklin Cider Mill. It's one of the last remaining historical buildings/operations in Franklin. Franklins used to be filled with working farms, old Barns (a few still standing) and beautiful orchards... My sister actually has an old "slaughter house" building in her backyard, that has to be approved by the city to be restored or torn down. Franklin is all about history and preserving it. The donuts and Cider are great at the Mill...usually there is a very long line and wait to get in, the very brief look at how the apples are crushed...etc...but worth a visit, especially with kids....I always take my young nephews there every year when they re open...warm donuts!!!!
