BRRRR . . .It's been a chilly start to the new year here in Franklin!
But the sweaters and boots do need a little time out of the closet!
Gosh, I've lived in Franklin for 19 years and over that time, I've really seen Franklin come into its own.
It's wonderful to see how our town remains true to its past while embracing the future as well.

We leave you with words from one of the best loved "mountain men" of all time, John Muir.
"Keep close to Nature's heart . . . and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean."
Our best wishes for a wonderful 2019.
