“Beautiful Town”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

My mom was born in Franklin 70 yrs ago. We went back to see her childhood home. The town is spotlessly clean and prosperous, took ghost tour one night and felt perfectly safe walking around in the dark! Great food and shopping and history. (not too much for kids to enjoy, more of an adult destination)
