The story of Franklin County is one of remarkable change and growth over the past 250 years. From its Native American roots, this corner of the eastern Piedmont has become a center for tobacco plantations, textile mills and cotton cultivation. It has seen seminal moments in the history of public education, Methodism and even capital punishment. One governor called Louisburg home, while several more have visited and even presidents have made brief stops. Local historian Eric Medlin narrates the history of one of the most exceptional parts of the great state of North Carolina.
