Welcome to Franklin Tennessee
Franklin began its humble beginnings late in the year 1799 by a state senator and a friend of Hugh Williamson which Williamson County was named after. Rich in Civil War history, the Battle of Franklin was fought in the city in 1864 and most of the city was turned into field hospitals at the time. Today, a Civil War monument is prominent in the town square located at 3rd and Main Street in addition to several historical homes located in the area.
