The Historic Franklin Presbyterian church is on Main Street. It was built in 1842, survived the Civil War and had to be reconstructed after a fire in 1905. It has a nice garden courtyard in the front and beautiful stained glass windows inside.

Friday Night Out - Tossed

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Tossed started in Manhattan and has spread to 8 states. With the population of salads this restaurant is popular especially with the girl's lunch crowd. The salads can be prepared a la carte or from their menu suggestion, then tossed with dressing. They also have soup and crepe sandwiches.

St Paul's Episcopal Church

This Episcopalian church is in downtown Franklin and was built in 1831. During the Civil War the church was used as a barracks and hospital and had to be remodeled after the war. It is the oldest Episcopal church west of the Appalachians. The original stained glass windows are made by Tiffany. There are at least 8 or more.

Friday Night Out - Mellow Mushroom

Mellow Mushroom is a chain pizza place. This one is located downtown in an old bank building. The best seats are outside, but there is usually a longer wait for a table.

We visited the petting zoo at the county fair. The alpacas were the cutest. All the animals were hungry for the carrots we fed them.

There are lots of farms and barns here. This one is off Lewisburg Pike in the middle of town even though it looks like the country.

Quilts for Soldiers

At the county fair we signed pieces of material that will be added to make a quilt for the soldiers in Iraq. There are so many ways to show your support for the troops and I'm glad that people take advantage of them.

Never Too Old

You're never too old to take a ride on a scooter. This is called a PlasmaCar and it runs by moving your body.

This is one of the shows we saw at the fair. Bruce Sarafian is a world record juggler. He was riding a triple unicycle while juggling three very sharp objects. He did other amazing juggling acts, but this one was the most impressive one.

Three's a Crowd

Found these dogs on Main Street Friday night out for a stroll. They are very fluffy and sweet Pomeranians. The owner rescued them from the pound. The one in the back was at the pound because he is overweight; the one in the middle because he was not fertile. I can not believe that these cute dogs would have been put to sleep for such insignificant reasons. It just makes me sad, and I'm glad there are people that want these dogs.

New church coming

This is the lot for a new church on Lewisburg Avenue. The church is currently meeting at the elementary school across the street. If there is a building that is empty on Sunday morning it probably has a church meeting there. That is why there is so many churches in Franklin.
