Norfolk County Reviews

3 reviews
Personally I like how peaceful it is here. There aren't a lot of cars speeding down the streets and honking their horns, and I also like how the community actually feels connected here. There are plenty of events going on through out the year and the town over all is well kept and presentable.

Norfolk is very diverse and cultured. It has great scenery at night, a beautiful downtown area, and tons to do.
The town of Franklin is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. I live and work in Franklin, also involved with community life.
