Welcome to the Town Franklin

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.

Iroquois history and culture. This is the Six

many seasonal activities and events. Many trails to
hike on, lake and streams to canoe on and the New

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".
