When many people consider a home for rent in Nashville, Tennessee, they often imagine the smells of barbecue wafting through colorful streets past concert halls, museums and restaurants. The pedestrians who walk about keep these southern traditions alive. The capital city has certainly made a name for itself among both the youth and long-time residents as an exciting and comfortable destination, but the greater area has more to offer. Just past the urban sprawl of Nashville and its immediate suburbs, many people have decided to rent homes in Franklin, Tennessee, where a close residential community offers many of the same cultural qualities with a charming small-town authenticity.
The area that surrounds Franklin rentals has been gradually built up through its long history, which began in late 1700s, when Scottish immigrant Ewen Cameron built the first house in the town. The Battle of Franklin, during the Civil War, has been called one of the bloodiest events on American soil by some historians. The mix of history and development give those who rent Franklin homes an intriguing cityscape that includes some Antebellum and Victorian houses, haunting Civil War sites, and a flourishing modern downtown area, highlighted by the Cool Springs Galleria.
Those who rent in Franklin celebrate the town's heritage through frequent festivals, including the Main Street Festival -- which includes about 200 artisans and two carnivals -- the Wine Down Main Street event in November, and the annual Pumpkinfest for Halloween.
