New Home Communities in Franklin County

Named after Benjamin Franklin and part of the Research Triangle, Franklin County, North Carolina, has a lot to offer. The nature of Franklin County can best be encompassed by the county song written by Fred Wolfe.

All communities present are quite fond of celebrating creativity. If you are a writer, Franklin County has just the thing for you. Inspiration is a harsh mistress, as we all know. Come to the Annual Spring Writers Retreat held on May 7th, and you might just find yours. In summer, everyone is ready for the kicking off of a series of festivals. Visit the county in June, and be a part of the “Art at the Jam” event at Wendell Falls.  Held at the lakeside pavilion, this event is the perfect distraction for that rare breed of jam-loving people and their friends and families. Talk to talented local artists and admire the art. With a plethora of pieces, a few might just catch your eye. You will not regret it.

Franklin County embraces its history, deeply connected to that of the entire south. Every year, on the 18th of June, everyone is invited to the free event that is the Juneteenth Celebration Picnic and Concert. So dust up your picnic basket and come to the BROAD community center in the town of Bunn.

For those a bit more adventurous and less artsy, there is always the Wayah Bald Lookout Tower in the Nantahala National Forest close to Franklin. Not a very common tourist spot, you will be glad to be having it all to yourself. Put on a pair of comfortable shoes and hike the gravel road up to the tower. The breathtaking view of the Appalachian and Bartram Trails is well worth it.

History buffs should visit Franklin’s History Society. With generous displays of artifacts discovered by local historians, right on county soil, there is no need to miss it. From the eras of colonial America, the Revolutionary War, Antebellum, the Civil War, and the turn of the century – there are items from every era.

Gem mining is a favorite activity for visitors and natives alike. Named the “Gem Capital of the World”, this county is home to a great number of gem mines. Perfect for those who don’t want to buy souvenirs from a shop, most mines let you do your own digging for a very small fee. You will be happy to go back home with a few gemstones in every color possible.   

If all this is not enough, Louisburg, the county seat, has its very own skydiving center. Having the most amazing and informative instructors, you will be able to experience the exquisite views Franklin County has to offer. With the great variety of things to do and see in the area, there is no doubt that this is a truly perfect place to start a new life. Thinking about it? New Home Source will help you with that!
