Town of Franklin song

The City Known as the Town of Franklin

Composed and Sung by James H. Barrett "our music teacher"

I know this place in Massachusetts
That's better than best it's as great as it gets
It's beauty and all of it's history's awaiting for you!

Folks are as friendly as friendly can be
Open your eyes there's plenty to see
Let's take a look at the long list of things you can do...

In the city known as the town of Franklin

Check out America's first lending library
A closer look shows you it's not ordinary
For inside you'll find the first books that were furnished by Ben

The one-room Red Brick School's become the town's treasure
The oldest one running by anyone's measure
Still looks the same now today as it did way back then

In the city known as the town of Franklin

Well, then there's the common that's uncommonly good
Where townspeople gather as townspeople should
Weddings, concerts, and festivals throughout the year

And monuments honor the mighty Mann, Horace
And all that this father of education did for us
It's no mystery why so many would choose to live here
