Franklin County Reviews

What I like about Franklin County is how diverse it is. The schools here are excellent, and the teachers are very nice. The neighborhoods are really nice and quiet. What I'd like to see change here are the gangs. I haven't seen much gang activities, but I've heard of many, and I believe that this County should try harder to get rid of it.

I lived here all 18 years of my life, i love where i live and wouldn't change it for the world. I have never experienced an issue with housing or finding jobs. Never had any issues and criminal issues
Very safe and also a great place to raise children. I have lived here my whole life and love the school system and also the food!
