Historic Franklin Tennessee

client: Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County | published: 2009

Charming Franklin, Tennessee was the site of the “five bloodiest hours” of the Civil War and its ensuing hallowed ground the inspiration for poet Alan Tate’s “Ode to the Confederate Dead.” Today, Franklin defines gracious Southern hospitality, boasting more National Register properties than any community in Tennessee, stately homes along tree-lined streets, and a downtown of quaint shops and festivals. Historic Franklin is used by the Heritage Foundation as a fundraiser and as a catalyst for public commitment in protecting the town’s unique historic character.

“Historic Franklin is simply one of the most gorgeous books of its kind I’ve ever seen. The lush, luminous photographs capture the gentle beauty of the landmarks and landscapes that folks in Williamson County have worked hard to preserve.”
