Franklin is home to a certain vibe; one that is distinctly southern, welcoming, and rooted in the Americana experience. The iconic Main Street, lined with eclectic shops, aromatic fare and inspired music around every corner, highlights the seamless blending of history centuries in the making. It is no wonder the New York Times call Franklin, “A Small Town Gem” and Garden & Gun readers named it the “Best Southern Town.”
