Franklin Preservation will hold its annual sale of castoffs and collectibles at the Old Lutheran Church 9 AM TO 5 PM October 4,5 & 6 during Applefest. Stop by and find your “treasure”. Choose from books, CDs, videos, linens jewelry, Christmas items and more. Proceeds will help us restore the historic architecture of the church building.
Share your memories with us. Did you or your family attend the Grace Lutheran Church when it was on the corner 11th and Buffalo Streets or attend the.Church when it became the Faith Holiness Church? Franklin Preservation is seeking your stories, photos and mementos of the Church. If you are willing to share your experiences at the Church, please contact us.
Our new website is still under construction. Please bear with us while we continue to add and revise site content.
