Franklin, incorporated in 1895, is New Hampshire's smallest city and is situated where the Pemigewasset and Winnipesaukee Rivers form the headwaters of the Merrimack River. Long known as the "Gateway to the White Mountains," Franklin was once a thriving tourist destination and a bustling mill town. These deep and varied roots inspired resident Elizabeth C. Jewell to document the city's development. Franklin continues to look towards the future and remains respectful of its past.
