Welcome to the City of Franklin!
As the County Seat of Venango County, Bicycle-Friendly Franklin has a rich history, dating back to colonial times as the strategic setting of four different frontier forts. But it's more than the history that you'll love about our town. It's more than having its main thoroughfare named as one of the ten Great Streets of America for 2010 by the American Planning Association (APA). It's more than the well-preserved Downtown, the charming Victorian neighborhoods, the standout festivals, the extensive bike trail network, the friendly town folk, and the excellent dining, lodging, and shopping opportunities in Franklin. It's the community spirit that has always made Franklin so special.
We invite you to check out our web site and to pay us a visit when you're in the area. See if the town spirit is evident to you as it is to us. We know you're going to love it!
