The Old Franklin Schoolhouse is a historic venue, community center, and gallery. Built ca. 1807, it served as a one-room schoolhouse until the 1870s, then was used as a private home by an Irish cobbler. By 1901 the old school had fallen into disrepair. A civic league formed in 1901 to rescue the building and use it as a clubhouse from which to improve the local community. It remains owned and maintained by a private non-profit, the Borough Improvement League, and serves a number of community purposes, from meeting space for like-minded non-profits, space for fundraisers, concerts, performance space, private event rentals, town events, and more. Open upon request for historical tours and to view our art space, "Transformations Gallery."
