|President Taft’s visit to Franklin|
Serving from 1909 to 1913, he is the only president known to have visited the town of Franklin, and he was accompanied that day by a future US president!
Learn more about the complex legacy of our 27th president, his local roots in Mendon and Uxbridge, his contribution to the prestige and glamor of the Massachusetts “gold coast,” and when and why he came to our town.
On Jan. 12 at 1:10 PM at the Franklin Historical Museum, presenter, Alan Earls, returns with a slide show and anecdotes about the man known, among other things, for his girth, his custom-built bathtub, and his later service on the Supreme Court.
Doors open at 1:00 PM. Museum located at 80 West Central Street. ADA Accessible
