With a unique mix of 19th century stately estates, contemporary apartments, solid single family residences, townhomes and even farmhouses, the City of Franklin’s diverse housing mix offers something for everyone. A walk through the City and outskirts reveals beautifully coiffed yards and pastoral views over a stunning rural landscape. Wooded fields, rivers and grazing horses make Franklin a serene place to call home.

While prices reflect the diversity of style, homes can be purchased from less than $100,000 ranging to the upper $300,000's, still affordable and significantly below surrounding areas.
