Fridays on the downtown square

spring courthouse

Franklin’s Downtown Square: Brick sidewalks, courtyard benches, period light posts and historic 1800’s architecture… ┬áSince 1992, Franklin – Simpson Renaissance has been dedicated to the revitalization of downtown Franklin Kentucky.

Our vision is to re-establish Franklin’s square as an active, viable economic center for professional, retail, social and cultural activities by encouraging economic development within the context of historic preservation. We, along with Preserve America, and The National Trust For Historic Preservation, advocate a return to community self-reliance, local empowerment, and the redevelopment of Franklin’s traditional commercial district based on its unique assets: distinctive architecture, a pedestrian-friendly environment, local ownership with personal service, and a strong sense of community.
