Franklin Townsite

Franklin Townsite Professional Review and Guide

"Take a tour through the once-thriving coal-mining community of Franklin.


Things are easy once on the trail. Head up to a signed junction complete with an ore cart donated by the Palmer Coking Company. Veer left for the mine and cemetery. While there are some foundations on the right, you need permission from Palmer before doing much in the way of exploring on their land."
