Reader's Poll Says Franklin is Best Middle TN Town to Visit

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Franklin has turned up on the "Best" list, twice this time, in the October issue of The Tennessee Magazine.

"This is a great honor to be chosen by the citizens of Tennessee as the best town square and best town to visit," said Mayor John Schroer. "I've lived in Franklin 35 years and being a native of Franklin, I've known this for a long time.  What makes Franklin the best is the wonderful people that live here, those who work to preserve our history and those who promote new economic opportunities for business, residents and visitors. We are proud of our heritage and the unique spirit that makes Franklin special, and obviously our little secret is becoming well known to the entire state."
