I moved to franklin 6 years ago. I am a native New Yorker. Franklin is a very pretty place. However, if you are not a right wing republican, which I am not, you will find it very hard to fit in. If you are not a church goer - or do not go to church - you are ostracized as life here seems to revolve around church. I find the populace here to be very narrow minded and regressive. I sometimes feel as if I am living in the south circa 1950. This makes me very uncomfortable although some may thrive in this atmosphere. There is absolutely no diversity here - everyone looks the same and believes the same. I do not think I can live in Franklin for many more years. Also, there is nothing to do. Another downside is that everyone is of the same socio economic background - rich. IT is hard to fit in.
