Franklin Reviews

1 review
Franklin is a great place to live for a good education and a welcoming community for every one and any one. I love that every body knows each other and will do anything for one another. I like how if someone's dog goes missing, everyone goes out and looks or keeps their eye out for them. Life in Franklin is great! I love how great the educational opportunities are in school and how the community takes such a big part in supporting the sports teams and different fine arts teams. I love and appreciate all of our city workers and how they keep the town clean. I love the restaurants, café, stores, businesses, and parks we have. I have lived in Franklin for 17 years and I've loved every minute of it.
