Welcome to Franklin! We are Buffie Baril and Brandon Baril, the mother-and-son team behind Lovely Franklin. Like the other 85,000 residents, we are proud to call Franklin, Tennessee home.

Lovely Franklin is historic Franklin’s marketing agency. Discover the fascinating backstories of the historic homes, interesting places, and fascinating people. Lovely Franklin also supports the downtown local businesses because they are the heart and soul of our community.

Founded in 1799, Franklin’s story is like all of our own stories. She has been wounded and has seen pain, but now she is redeemed, stronger and more beautiful. 

From the sadness of The Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864, to the happiness of today, Franklin’s story of tragedy to triumph is as intriguing as it gets.

Imagine a town filled with charm, beauty, romance, historical significance, and supported by a community dedicated to preserving it all.

Downtown Franklin is appropriately named, “America’s Favorite Main Street.” Her bustling streets, delightful stores and shop owners, and incredible restaurants all make Franklin a distinctively unique town. It’s truly Southern and feels like you’ve stepped into a Hallmark movie.
