The town was officially incorporated on March 2, 1778 and the museum marks this anniversary each year by inviting all residents sharing the same birthday, as well as the general public, to celebrate.
About 80 people share the March 2 birthday and special invitations were sent to each of those residents in February.
All March 2 birthday celebrants in attendance that day are entered into a drawing for a cash prize, which features the face of the town’s namesake, Benjamin Franklin! Guests are treated to cake, coffee, Franklin trivia, and a bit of Franklin History.
The Historical Museum is open
- Saturdays 10 AM to 1 PM
- Sundays 1 PM to 4 PM
