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.

FANTASTIC! Congratulations, and Cathy Saladin Bailey you brought tears to my eyes!

Awesome! Good job Mayor, Cathy and AAC!

So many people need this. My widowed best friend in Illinois had to put off cataract surgery last month because she had no way to get to the optometrist in her town - no taxis, no buses, no Ubers or Lyfts, etc. She had to wait until a family member was able to come to her town and take her and wait and take her home. There are a lot of people who need transportation assistance.

Cool
