Stories and photographs from visits to old alleyways and scenic landscapes

Historic Franklin

“The Town That Time Forgot” – Franklin, Michigan




I’ve decided one morning to visit a cafe near my place and i was a great surprise to discover that the cafe is located at a historic downtown. I walked around the village with the feeling that i was being transported back in time! The village has a lineup of preserved buildings with historic architecture.

I went back the following week and walked around the area to do a short photo walk. Check out the photos i took to document some of its preserved buildings.
