Franklin Veterans' Memorial Walkway to Honor all Veterans


The Town of Franklin is doing more to remember not just local veterans, but any veteran or active duty service member from anywhere in the country.  The recently dedicated walkway at the town common offers anyone the chance to buy a dedicated brick for a military person they know.

The bricks cost $100 each and a
ll funds raised will go towards the purchase of bricks and construction of the project. Residual funds will go towards the maintenance of the walkway and to the Franklin Veterans’ Fund. Each brick will include the name and branch of service of the person for which it is dedicated.


The pathway starts at the flagpole at the town common by the war memorial, and circles around to connect with the diagonal walk on the Union Street side.

The walkway honors those who gave the ultimate sacrifice with a bronze plaque atop a granite column for each veteran. The brick walkway honors all veterans for their service to our country. There are currently 1009 engraved bricks in the walkway and bricks will continue to be sold to fund maintenance costs of the walkway and other Veteran Memorials on the Common.

Brick orders postmarked by April 15, 2019 will be dedicated on Memorial Day, 2019. Bricks postmarked between April 16, 2019 and Spetember 30, 2019 will be dedicated on Veterans Day, 2019.
