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.

Probably not appropriate to have an “Elect Barnett” shirt featured on the city’s official Facebook account. Just saying.

This is awesome! Such a great opportunity.

Doan good job!

Love the shirt.

Molly and Darrin - very cool! Two great kiddos there Mr. Mayor (Steve) 💙

Congrats Erin !

On another note, or paint canvas. Does anyone know where the Bison that was painted in each county went to? It would be nice to have it on display permanently somewhere.

Sorry don't like it!
