“Only twenty minutes south of Indianapolis, Franklin is an exciting blend of tradition and innovation. Franklin has a rich history, dating back to its founding in 1823. Our downtown boasts traditional main street shops, coffeehouses and restaurants, and the outstanding academic institution of Franklin College. Victorian mansions line King and Jefferson streets, and our trails provide plenty of opportunities for a quiet walk or a scenic jog.

Franklin is also a city on the move. It is home to a state-of-the-art high school, a bustling night life, and nonprofit groups that work hard to advance our quality of life. Our pro-business attitude and strategic location have attracted companies globally, including seven Japanese corporations.” – City of Franklin website
