Locate Houses for Rent in Franklin, MA

Franklin is a suburban community with a focus on education to the south of the lively metropolis of Boston. Thanks to the town's freshly renovated schools and excellent library of historic proportions, homes for rent in Franklin could be a great choice for those looking to raise a family.

Interesting Facts Franklin Renters Should Know

  • Franklin is named after the American statesman Benjamin Franklin. The town took it on when it was incorporated, giving up its previous name of Exeter.
  • Benjamin Franklin responded to Franklin's decision to honor him by sending books for use by the residents of the newly formed town. These volumes continue to be housed in the Reading Gallery of the Franklin Public Library.
  • The dispute over the use of Mr. Franklin's donation led to the decision to make the books available for public lending, thus establishing what some say is the first public library in the U.S.

Useful Resources for Franklin Residents

  • A number of helpful links and sources of information may be found on the Town of Franklin's municipal website.
  • The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority website provides resources, like schedules and maps, to facilitate travel in the region via public transit.

Things to Do in Franklin

There's no shortage of ways to enjoy the outdoors in Franklin. Green spaces, playgrounds and sports fields dot the landscape of the town, most notably the 883-acre Franklin State Forest and Fletcher Field. Several bars and restaurants may also be found in town, such as the British Beer Company, home of an impressive selection of draft beers. To experience a style of bowling native to Massachusetts, residents can visit Ficco's Bowladrome and toss a few balls on its 28 candlepin lanes. Sports fans can also catch a New England Patriots game at nearby Gillette Stadium. Of course, if a break from suburbia is in order, the urban center of Boston is less than an hour away and offers all manner of cultural and entertainment attractions.
