4 Reasons You’ve Got to Come See Our New & Improved Visitor Center!

There’s no better way to kick off a trip to historic Franklin than with a pit stop at our Visitor Center—not only is it in the cutest little location off of Main Street, but it’s chock-full of tips and resources to help you maximize your time in our small town. Plus, you can grab some adorable Franklin merch to help those memories last even after you’ve settled in back home! 

In partnership with Middle Tennessee-based interior design studio Design Object, the Visitor Center just received a makeover to help make it as inviting and charming as the rest of our town. Check out these four fun (and functional) new additions. 

Interactive Wall

The new digs now feature a dedicated area where visitors can design their own personalized adventure in Williamson County. Whether you’re a foodie, a history buff, or a whiskey lover, you’re in good hands in our town, and we have a curated itinerary with your name on it. While you’re personalizing your experience, you’re also able to interact with our Information Specialists for recommendations. 

Community Table

Right when you walk in, you’re greeted by a community table that rotates through merchandise displays or can be configured for use during community workshops or special events. This central stop is the heart of the Visitor Center, all with a goal to foster community and connection. In addition to the community table, there are several retail spaces that were constructed using barn wood material and charcoal branding colors. 

Neon Sign

Be sure to snap a picture under our new LED neon welcome sign suspended behind two plush red chairs for the perfect photo op. If you need to beat the heat or relax while planning your perfect day, this is the spot for you.

Welcome Desk

Using reclaimed barn wood that was actually salvaged from Visit Franklin’s former welcome desk, the new welcome and checkout area features a modern shape with rustic styling. It’s now the space’s centerpiece, set in front of a reclaimed wood backdrop that nods to Williamson County’s pastoral landscape. Here, guests can purchase their goodies and chit chat with our information specialists. 

Whether you’re visiting for the first time or returning time and again, or even if you’re a local ready for a refresh on our great county, we’re back open for business and ready to welcome y’all to town with open arms.
