Franklin, LA

Named after Benjamin Franklin, Franklin is in the middle of the old sugar plantation area of Louisiana and in it’s heyday was the richest city in the State. This wealth is reflected in the many grand plantation homes and mansions, many of which are still standing.


The main street of the town itself is lined with rows of old street lamps, once gas, now electric.
