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.

Mayor isn't getting votes come election with cooper being free to hurt people.

Lock Him Up!!!

Perhaps you could take "flushing out violence" a little more seriously and see that Bradley Cooper gets TRUE justice.

Great start with the prosecutor and dig deeper. That would flush quite a few I’d say. 😒

What is you like the lawn ornament and decided to keep it?

👎🏻 how about having these “festivals” at the fair grounds so that I don’t have to stay home all day for fear of not being able to park outside MY OWN HOUSE when I get back.

Marvin Tetrick this must be the festival you were talking about - April 27th 10-5.

This is one of the success stories in Franklin. We will keep working to clean up our environment. Thank you SESCO Group!We are beginning the week with a hydraulic lift and historic UST system removal at the former Stephen's Auto Brownfield site in Franklin, Indiana. The site is being redeveloped by Truster Building & Fence, LLC – they are also rehabilitating the building to use for their business operations. SESCO routinely assists cities and municipalities with redevelopment projects to help improve our local communities.
