The Franklin Terrace
Originally built in 1887, this charming, Antebellum style home was used as a young women's boarding school. In 1902, it served for a time as Franklin's public school and in 1915 it was converted into a Hotel. In 1982, The building was added to a much deserved place on The National Register of Historic Places. This grand old Terrace has seen many changes since then as owners have come and gone, yet she has always served the members and the visitors of Franklin well.
