Live, Work, and Play for a Lifetime!
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.

Dear City of Franklin residents: The Graham/Lynhurst railroad crossing will be closed July 25th-29th.

The Jefferson St. railroad crossing will open back up tomorrow morning.

Please be patient while the Railroad works on the rails. We are trying to manage them as much as possible. The City of Franklin doesn't control the railroad or their schedule. The people working on the rail are simply doing what they are told. We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience this causes our citizens. Please know we are doing everything we can to get the Railroad finished with their work as quickly as possible.
