The Franklin Area Historical Society (FAHS) was established in 1965 to preserve the history of the City of Franklin and the area. This is accomplished through a variety of publications, including our newsletter, as well as the collections and exhibitions of objects of local historical importance in the Harding Museum

The Harding Museum is a Colonial Revival home built in 1900 in Franklin's historic Mackinaw District (on the National Register of Historic Places). It is furnished with antiques and memorabilia from Franklin and the surrounding area. General Forrest Harding and his brother Justin left a large collection of World War II items, including a bound transcript of the Nuremburg trials. The Harding Museum is maintained and operated by the Franklin Area Historical Society.

The Society relies solely on membership dues, private donations and grants for operations. 

Our museum is in dire need of painting and repairing rotted wood as it was last painted over 20 years ago. Our goal would be for the project to be completed by the fall of 2016 in order to prevent further weather damage. This project is estimated at $18,000.

On behalf of all volunteers of the Franklin Area Historical Society, we would be extremely grateful for any donation to help us save this important landmark in the neighborhood and community.

Would you consider donating $25.00, $50 or some other amount to help us preserve this part of history?

Even though we a very short on our goal we had to go ahead and start the painting project. The building on the outside is starting to deteriorate at an accelerated rate. We plan on getting a short term loan to fund the rest of the project.
We are still in desperate need for donations.

Any amount you can spare will be much appreciated.
