Dickens of a Christmas in Franklin
The Heritage foundation will be organizing the annual Dickens of a Christmas event in Historic downtown Franklin, Saturday Dec 8th from 10 a.m. until 05:00 p.m., and Sunday Dec 9th from noon until 5 p.m.
Volunteers participate in the event as characters from Dickens' stories. Franklin's Main Street is a perfect setting for a Victorian Christmas celebration. Most of the buildings were built between 1890 and the early 1900s and are beautifully restored. The sight of the whole town in Victorian attire make it easy to imagine Franklin as a 19th century English village.
The entire 15-block area of Downtown Franklin is on the National Register of Historic Places and the town is the recipient of a Great American Main Street Award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is a recipient of the Preserve America award. The commercial historic district is surrounding by four residential districts that also are on the National Register.
