In our community, we are all family – working together, playing together, and maintaining a community that has been pegged one of “The Fifty Best Small Southern Towns,” being the only Kentucky city along I-65 to earn a place on this exclusive list.

We like to promote our home to visitors, potential residents and potential businesses.  We believe when you have a good thing going, you should share it, so welcome to the City of Franklin, Kentucky.
