Franklin was incorporated during the early years of our country’s war for Independence. Less than two years after our young country declared independence from the Crown, the West Precinct of Wrentham declared independence and became the town of Franklin, March 2nd, 1778.
|Franklin celebrates 242nd birthday|
The town has flourished and grown, first as a farming community, then a manufacturing town, and today is home to nearly 32,000 people. All residents are invited to stop by and share a piece of birthday cake, Sunday March 1st between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM.
The Franklin Historical Museum is located at 80 West Central Street. We are ADA compliant, admission is always free and donations are gratefully accepted.
