Visitors to Historic Downtown Franklin experience an award-winning Great American Main Street town and 200 years of history. The Victorian commercial district, with its commemorative brick sidewalks and beautifully renovated historic buildings housing elegant shops, is the heart of Franklin and Williamson County. Downtown Franklin offers an eclectic mix of antique shops, gift and book stores, art galleries, clothiers, and an array of personal and professional services.
Downtown Franklin is a favorite place for those seeking true Southern hospitality and the best shopping and dining in Middle Tennessee. And two of our major annual festivals are among the top 20 events in the entire Southeast, according to the Southeast Tourism Society.
Come take a stroll down Main Street and our surrounding historic neighborhoods of restored antebellum homes. As we like to say, we’re only 15 miles and 100 years down the road from Nashville!
