Franklin County’s Story

Mention Franklin County, Virginia just about anywhere and you’re sure to hear a story or two about our bootleggin’ past. Then visit this vibrant community and you’ll quickly see that our story doesn’t end there.

We’re a haven for hometown music as the Eastern Gateway to the Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail, and home to the region’s newest music venue, the Harvester Performance Center. A scenic “land between the lakes,” we offer some of the region’s best outdoor experiences. Our White Lightning Artisan Trail is all about unique, handcrafted treasures and our storied agricultural heritage is celebrated.
