Home Sweet Home


Moving away from Carter House and the Battle of Franklin, I thought I would show you some of the beautiful homes in the downtown Franklin area. There are a lot of homes that sit just a few blocks from Main Street, which I think is great. The neighborhoods are charming, and the homes have a lot of character. As I mentioned in the post about Westhaven, developers are trying to bring back that town center feel. Having lived in suburbia most of my life, I really like that idea and would love to try it sometime.

Note: Thanks to all of you who have left comments or emailed me about the Carter House "book" that I've blogged over the past few days. As a student, I hated history because, like most of us, I had to remember names and dates. Fortunately, I've learned that there is much more to history than names and dates.

Tomorrow, we'll take another look at downtown Franklin.

Very nice, I love the tree with it's beautiful autumn colors. I imagine in another week or two this tree will be bare.
