February 12th Franklin Civil War Round Table event to focus on the historic role of the Franklin courthouse

The February event will be at the newly refurbished Williamson County Courthouse to be led by Heritage Foundation historian and RT member Rick Warwick.   We are fortunate in having one of the few Civil War era courthouses (still standing) in Tennessee that has witnessed much of Franklin’s history.  Not only during the Civil War but post war, our courthouse was right in the “middle of it.”  Rick will share with us some of its rich history while we meet in the newly redone main courtroom.  As always, we will start at 3:00.

Built in 1858 for $20, 000, it is one of seven antebellum courthouses in Tennessee. the courthouse house has been remodeled several times over the years, most recently in 2010 with a $10 million cost.
