Franklin Reviews

I've lived in Franklin off and on all of my life. The countryside is beautiful. It's a quiet place where people are friendly and you can feel safe. There is no big retail shopping but the nearest city is only 15 minutes away. There are cute shops and eateries that are welcoming and serve local food.
