Franklin is a place that is very homey. It's a city where everybody knows everybody. Franklin isn't the best place for a young teen like myself. I am young and full of adventure, but Franklin only offers grocery stores and fast food places. we don't even have places for little kids to enjoy. I would put some enjoyment in Franklin because it is dry.

Franklin is a average hometown and it’s very small. I would like to see Franklins roads fixed, more stores, and i would like for the small town to prosper!
Franklin is a small historical town in down south Louisiana. Sitting by Bayou Teche, Franklin is a family friendly "everybody knows everybody" town.
