History Of Franklin

Franklin history dates back to the early 1800's, when the city was founded south of Indianapolis.

In the early 1800's, the city was growing and buildings were built. Some of the more famous include Franklin College, founded by the Baptists in 1834; the August Zeppenfeld House, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Masonic Temple, from 1924, now the site of the Johnson County Museum of History; and the Johnson County Courthouse on the square in downtown Franklin, a breathtaking example of the red brick buildings with white trim from the 1880's.

No discussion of the history of this city would be complete without mentioning the historic Greenway Trail, created by the Franklin Parks and Recreation Department. This is a walking trail that follows Young's Creek and then branches off into the countryside before it meets up with Hurricane Creek. From the covered bridges along the trail to the sweeping wooded paths, to the historic structures along the way, those who travel this historic trail experience a true connection with historic Franklin, Indiana.
