Franklin Tennessee

Where is Franklin TN?  Just south of Nashville, the historic and charming city of Franklin is situated “only 15 miles and 100 years down the road” as residents like to say. Franklin offers residents clean and attractive neighborhoods, low taxes, and a beautiful 15-block historic district full of rich history and Victorian architecture. The average household income was $74,000 as of 2009 and average single family home sales price is $417,000 for the last 6 months as of May 2012.

Lovers of antiques and small-town charm will be delighted with the historic town of Franklin. It was recently cited as one of 100 cities in the book “Best Places to Raise Your Family: The Top 100 Affordable Communities in the U.S.” by Bert Sperling and Peter Sander. The authors gave a special mention to Franklin as one the best cities for history buffs.

A unique mix of rolling hills, mixed wood, and farmland adorn the land in and around Franklin. Home prices are typically higher than other areas of Nashville, with the northern neighborhoods a bit more upscale and expensive and the southern neighborhoods offering moderately affordable homes. Homeowners have enjoyed a strong housing market and a healthy appreciation of home values in recent years.

Fun and leisure can be found in the many parks and recreation facilities in Franklin. The city is also home to many significant Civil War historic sites. Residents and visitors alike treasure the small-town charm of Franklin that is far enough away from the hustle of the city yet still only a 20 minute commute to downtown Nashville.

Franklin has received numerous awards and recognitions over the years such as Money Magazine’s Top 10 Places to Retire and Top 100 Best Places to Live, the Clean Cities Award, Tree City USA, the Number One Small Town in Tennessee, and many more. It is no surprise that several musicians, other famous stars, and a good mix of regular folks are proud to call Franklin their home.
