Some Facts About Franklin NC!

Long before the first settlers arrived, the fertile mountains of southwestern North Carolina were home to the Cherokee Indian Nation. In a valley surrounded by some of the oldest mountains on earth, the Cherokee called the land that is now Franklin “Nikwasi” or “center of activity”.
The name still holds true today, as Franklin is a center of history, heritage and the mountain way of life. Franklin celebrated its 150th Anniversary during 2005 and continues to hold true to our heritage while embracing the future. Nestled in North Carolina’s southern mountains,
in the foothills of the Great Smokies, the area offers a unique change of pace, a never-ending supply of things to do.
The pictures above are pictures from our drive though the Smoky Mountains on Easter Sunday.
