"Historical Town in the Oil Region" Franklin by Rabbityama

Franklin Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 25 photos

Franklin is a small town, but sometimes that's kind of nice. At first, it may seem like a boring town, and sometimes it is, but if you take the time to look, you'll find that it has its fair share of interesting sites. Most visitors to Franklin come to tour the Oil Region, which is made up of Venango County and Titusville.

The beauty of every season can be seen in Franklin. This picture is actually a bit late in fall, so the leaves are not nearly as beautiful as they were a few weeks before this picture was taken!

The apple blossoms in the spring. Franklin's Applefest is the largest arts and crafts festival in Western Pennsylvania.

    I grew up near Franklin (in Lucinda, near Clarion) and have made occasional visits to places like Tri-City Speedway &Two Mile Run Park. As a kid we used to go see Wings Over Venango... is that still going on? Enjoyed the memories from your page. Joe

    Hi Brandon, thanks for visiting my homepage. I see that you're from Franklin. Many years ago I lived in Clarion,Pa for a year and had friends in Franklin. I really liked it there.

    We used to camp every year near Marienville and Warren. I think they may be near your part of the world. My husband also did some work at Westminister College. Are these familiar names? Don't know Franklin, I'm near Lewisburg.
