How Franklin stacks up
Storage Cafe identified three sectors as Franklin’s strongest attributes:
Downtown Franklin received a standing ovation for its walkable streets, Victorian-style architecture, and lots of shops + restaurants. Franklin is touted for giving “many large cities a run for their money” for its variety of street festivals, music events, and family-friendly fun — we even spy a mention of the Main Street Festival + Bluegrass Along the Harpeth.
