Small towns, very family oriented great place to retire. Our town could use more place and entertainment for the younger generations, we could use more places to shop. We have plenty of food options. We really look forward to our Annual Parish Fair it’s a chance for everyone to have some fun for a few days.

Great little town! Love fair time and they always decorate for holidays! Small and quiet. Has a great farmers market that is open for anyone to sell! People are kind.
The town of Franklinton, Louisiana has been home for the past 18 years and has been a pretty enjoyable experience for me. A lost of the residents here are a joy to be with and the schools have some of the best teachers around. There is a ton of diversity in this town with some amazing restaurants. While it can sometimes be an issue to find something to do, nothing really beats taking a walk around in Dirt Cheap or visiting the local Farmer's Market and seeing what goods are available.
