Second Sunday Speaker Series: History Of Franklin Written In Stone - Sunday, Mar 12

Stories from the Union Street Cemetery
Just who were the prominent people and families who helped shape our town in the early days after incorporation? The Mann Family, Oliver Dean, the Rays, Thayers, Ponds, Metcalfs, Fishers, Fletchers, etc. Many of these families sent notable men into the world as well as many who lent high standards of service to our town. 
They’re all resting peacefully in the Union Street Cemetery and they all have a story to share. Come learn about their lives, their influence and see the beautiful monuments and gravestones that mark their life and passing. 

Sunday March 12, 2023. Doors open at 1:00, presentation starts at 1:15. Admission is always free. 

We’re collecting paper towels to donate to the Franklin Food Pantry. Please consider making a donation. 
When you visit the Museum and make a purchase in our gift shop, you help support the museum and its programs. The gift show is run by the Friends of the Franklin Historical Museum.
