Originally named after Benjamin Franklin, it was founded in 1799. The main sights to see include the Main Street where the locals prize the Franklin Theater as the best spot on the block. It was built in 1937 and still sends people to the good old days with its art deco charm.
Downtown Franklin is a great place to walk to catch every place to shop, dine and explore. Events are held regularly, so when you visit, make sure to find out what is going on so you do not miss a thing including the Brewfest, the Art Scene and even the Dickens of Christmas event.

Franklin is thought of as a suburb to Nashville but it has its own economic pulse. There are many businesses that employ healthcare workers and the real estate offerings are well within reach for most families that make this charming city their homes.
This city is not one you will want to miss on your trip to Tennessee to hit the country-music headquarters of the world.
