Pictures from around town

Walgreens is making progress. The walls are up and being covered with brick.



The older buildings downtown have been spruced up.



The museum is getting its work done. According to Jeff Nutting's update at the recent Town Council meeting, the windows have a long lead time but otherwise the work is on schedule and on budget.



Spring Pond located along Washington St was showing the full range of autumn colors. The picture does not do justice to the scene.



What do you find around Franklin that shows autumn for you?
