Franklin Downtown Partnership Unveils Flower Alley

The Franklin Downtown Partnership (FDP) unveiled its finished Flower Alley between 15 and 17 East Central St. this week. The unveiling comes after months of planning by the FDP and mural paintings by five Franklin Art Association members.

The floral-centered murals that line the alley will comprise one of approximately 25 stops along Franklin’s Ladybug Trail. The Ladybug Trail will feature ladybug sculptures, as well as murals, to help promote economic development in downtown Franklin. 

"Eventually, visitors will walk along the trail using a digital map and view signage

detailing the history of Franklin," FDP Executive Director Lisa Piana said. “The FDP believes economic development projects like this encourage people to walk around the area and enjoy the art, historical sites, and the many wonderful businesses and restaurants in our downtown.”
