History of Franklin Tennessee and its Neighborhoods


Founded just before 1800 Franklin is the county seat of Williamson County.  Named for Dr. Hugh Williamson's (Williamson County) close friend and fello Continental Congress member Benjamin Franklin.  Franklin was the site of one of the bloodiest battle of the Civil Wars, The Battle of Franklin in 1864.  Over 8,000 casualties turned every building in the town into a hospital.  

It took years after the Civil War to restore Franklin and Williamson County to its status as the wealthiest counties in Tennessee.  Since the mid 1900's it has transitioned from a cozy farm community to the Number 1 Small Town in Tennessee.  

Its quaint town center and Main Street is surrounded by some of the warmest diverse styled communities and neighborhoods.  Downtown Franklin schedules several communtiy functions each year, from their Spring festival to Franklin on The Fourth, The Jazz Festival and Dickens of a Christmas.
