The city of Franklin is the acting county seat of Williamson County, and when you combine it’s highly-touted school system and the rate at which new jobs are coming to the area, its appeal and desirability isn’t likely to fade anytime soon. 

According to recent reports, Franklin-based Bristol Development Group
