So many wonderful memories! Thank you😊
What a great place to go to get educated on the history of Franklin. The volunteers are eager to help in any way they can. They have a decent collection of old Franklin Press newspapers and donated memorabilia to look at. If you really want a look into the past I suggest purchasing the History of Macon County books (Vol. I & II) they have for sale. I also purchased the book 150 years of Franklin, Then and Now. A great pictorial history book.
Very interesting little museum
Place closes too early. But, would have been fun to look at.
Staff is knowledgeable. Lots of interesting pieces, pictures, artifacts. Definitely worth a visit if you're interested in Macon County history.
