Franklin Furnace Historical Events

1700's (approximately)
There is an area in Franklin Furnace called the "French-grant Estates." French settlers came to this area after purchasing lots of land on which to settle. When they arrived, they found the land they owned was fictitious. After spending all their money on this false purchase, they had no where to turn so the government gave them some land. This land was called the French Grant Estates. In present time, this is a small single family home community right next to Green High School in Franklin Furnace.
