Franklin County Reviews
Small town, easy to make connections/friendships and diversity is high! I went to elementary school and regional school here and I wouldn't change it for the world!
Franklin is a once small town that has grown considerably. With top rated public schools, easy access to 495 and the Commuter rail, and plenty of dining and shopping options it has evolved into a very convenient place to live. The small neighborhoods and high safety ratings make it a great place for families and kids.
Franklin is a family friendly, college town. The town has a very low crime rate. Everything is in walking distance, including mall, [post office, banks , town hall and restaurants. The school system is very good. Score high in math and reading levels.
