WILLIAMSON COUNTY / FRANKLIN, TN
  • Demographics/Statistics

  • History
    Because of its scenic rolling hills, prospering economy, interstate access, enviable school systems and close proximity to Nashville, the county's population has more than tripled since 1980. Although the people are forward-thinking, they appreciate and value the past. Established in 1799, Franklin serves as the county seat of Williamson County, and its15-block original downtown area has been named to the National Register of Historic Places. The county as a whole is rich in history and many of its historic sites are associated with the Civil War's brief but fierce Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864.

  • Location/Directions
    Just 25 minutes from the Nashville International Airport and 20 minutes from Downtown Nashville, Williamson County is bisected from north to south by Interstate 65. Highway 96 East (Murfreesboro Road), Highway 431 (Hillsboro Road), and Highway 31 (Franklin Road) serve as gateways leading directly into the heart of Franklin, the county seat.

    Eight miles west of downtown Franklin, the scenic Natchez Trace National Parkway which runs from Nashville to Natchez, MS offers another route through the area.
