Visiting Museums in Franklin, KY

September 7, 2022

On Saturday (September 3), the weather was beautiful. To take advantage of the lovely sunny and cool weather, Bruce drove us into Historic Downtown Franklin, KY.

Franklin is a beautiful small town. We parked by at the courthouse square under shade trees and walked to the Franklin Museum.

We got a tour of the museum. I didn’t take a lot of pictures, but there is a lot to see.

We were taken across the street to the old stone jail.

We then toured the jailer’s home which is connected to the Stone Jail. On the second floor of the jailer’s home, Civil War prisoners were kept. The prisoners left behind graffiti on the walls. The museum workers put up pictures of officers they believed the drawings to represent.

The garden club’s garden was in bloom and it was lovely.

We walked back to the truck along the courthouse square. We walked around the courthouse to see all of the town buildings around the square. The town is well kept up and looks prosperous.

We ate lunch at the Brickyard and the food was very good.

When we came out of the restaurant, it was raining. Bruce offered to get the truck, but I decided to walk in the warm rain back to the truck with him.

It rained all of Sunday, so we didn’t do anything then. Monday, we managed to get hitched and out of the RV park before it started raining.
