Welcome to the Franklinton Historical Society, a group of dedicated people who have a strong sense of pride in this area’s historic past, and its growth. Within the pages of this website you will find some of the fascinating stories of how the Franklinton founders developed the area, built Franklin County’s first courthouse and went on to found Columbus itself.

Please join us in our efforts to maintain and restore the Harrison House and Sullivant Land Office as part of our rich history. It is a key component of allowing the Society to educate and share information about Franklinton’s multi-faceted history.

Today Franklinton is growing in interest with new homes and businesses. The Franklinton Historical Society combines community and events to bring the new residents together while celebrating the past.
