Rent an apartment in Franklin and you'll be pleasantly surprised by its unique blend of the historic and the progressive. This special combination of old and new is a huge reason why Franklin has won at least a dozen awards and honors, such as the title of 2009 Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It's also why Franklin is one of the cities listed in the book 1,000 Places to See in the USA and Canada Before You Die by the New York Times bestselling author, Patricia Schulz.
You'll be delighted by all of the amazing places not far from any Franklin apartment. Let's see. There's the Village of Leiper's Fork Ð an historic village just minutes from downtown with unique shops, art galleries, entertainment, special events and more. Then, there's Historic Franklin, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (one of the many honors we mentioned earlier), which is comprised of 15 blocks of charming downtown retail stores, restaurants, antique shops, a cinema and well, the list goes on and on.
But one of the coolest restoration projects near Franklin apartments is the Factory at Franklin. This area of 11 depression-era buildings was once occupied by four factories. It's now home to a variety of shops, eateries, a theatre, a farmer's market and much more, but a large portion of the old structures remain.
When you move into your Franklin apartment, you'll also notice the many parks in the area that range from the passive to the active, the historic to the modern and everywhere in between. Have a picnic by the Harpeth River in Pinkerton Park. Then, walk along the trails and near the trenches dug by Civil War troops at Fort Granger and enjoy the beautiful views of Franklin from the southern hillside.
