Have you ever been stopped in traffic and wondered why in the world you put up with it? Are you tired of the constant newscasts about drugs, gangs, assaults and murders? How about the pollution and the noise? Do you enjoy the rat race and the concrete jungle? Are your kids getting a good education, or are they learning more about sex, drugs and violence? Could you allow your kids to walk to school unescorted, or leave your car unlocked for half a minute?
Located just a few miles from the exact geographic center of the continental United States, Franklin lies nestled in the vast tall-grass prairie of America’s Midwest near the Republican River. Surrounded by spring-fed creeks, streams and rolling hills, this country is a paradise for wildlife. Some say that these Great Plains are the true heartbeat of America where family values, a good education, excellent health care, outdoor recreation and a peaceful lifestyle still exist and can be enjoyed by all.
If you are considering a move, whether you are a professional that can work from a home office, a small business owner looking for a community that is business friendly with an excellent home-grown work ethic, a retiree interested in recreation, wonderful health care and very affordable housing, or an individual or family wanting a peaceful lifestyle with all the modern amenities, the City of Franklin is the right choice.
