Happy Birthday Franklin! - You can help celebrate at the Historical Museum - Mar 6

Where are you celebrating your birthday? 

The Franklin Historical Museum is the place to be to celebrate the 244th birthday of the Town of Franklin. In the midst of our young country’s Revolutionary War, the residents of the western precinct of Wrentham established their own charter and the town of Franklin was incorporated on March 2, 1778

All are welcome to stop in for a piece of cake and catch up on Franklin’s history. Residents sharing the same birthdate have received special invitations to share their mutual birthday together. All attendees sharing the same birthday as the town will be entered into a drawing for a bank note with none other than Ben Franklin’s photo adorning it! The fun starts at 1:00 PM Sunday. March 6 with the drawing held at 1:45 PM. 

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Franklin Historical Museum. When visiting the museum, please bring a non-perishable food item for the Franklin Food Pantry. 

Admission to the museum is always free.

The Historical Museum is located at 80 West Central St, Franklin, MA.

Where you born on March 2?

If so, guess what, you share your birthday with the Town of Franklin!

Although the Town of Franklin is much older (March 2, 1778), we thought it would be fun to invite everyone that shares March 2nd as their birthday to a “Birthday Bash” at the museum. From the looks of things, we will have over 70 people that share that date from children to adults.

We are planning to have a cake, beverages and certainly balloons. Who knows, we may also have some special birthday presents for everyone.

Please RSVP as soon as possible to Deborah L. Pellegri, Town Clerk and Chairman of the Historical Commission at 508-520-4900 or email me at

Remember, family and friends are all invited and certainly welcomed.

We look forward to hearing from you real soon
