Welcome to the Town Franklin

Town Franklin, founded in 1836, is located in the Southern end of Franklin County. It has been called a scenic oasis in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains located in upstate New York. When traveling through the Town of Franklin there is so much to see and visit.

In a picturesque setting, one mile out of the hamlet of Onchiota and 14 miles from Saranac Lake is a museum devoted to Iroquois history and culture. This is the Six Nations indian Museum. The Town of Franklin offers many seasonal activities and events. Many trails to hike on, lake and streams to canoe on and the New York State owned Buck Pond for camping pleasures.

In the winter, The Town of Franklin offers a whole new experience and beauty. There is Cross Country Skiing and Snow Shoeing through pristine wilderness, snowmobiling on the Corridor Number 7 as well as back country trails, skating at Kate Mountain Park and the list goes on.

The Future is Now! People's Committee to Build a Town of Franklin Community Center

The mission of The Future is Now is to raise funds for the construction of a Community Center at the Town of Franklin's Kate Mountain Park in Vermontville. The park consists of 28 beautiful acres with hiking trails, a pavilion, basketball court and two softball fields. As the Town grows, so do the needs of the residents. A Community Center will be a welcome addition to the Town. The possibilities for the use of the building are endless... after school programs, club meetings, parties, community suppers, game nights, how-to classes, locker rooms for sporting events, etc. Everyone, regardless of experience, is very, very welcome to join the committee.

The need for a Community Center has been talked about for years but we say "The Future is Now".
