Part 2 of the walking tour with Miller Park. Meet at the Quality Inn at 8:45. Whether you are interested in being a speaker during Applefest, want to help with the updating of our current tour book, or always wanted to take the tour but never had the opportunity, please consider joining us for this very informative tour.

Eddie St. Clair will be conducting this tour and looking to recruit new guides / speakers for future tours. This will be one not to miss.

Here is an excerpt from one of the homes on this tour currently being restored:

Samuel Dale House - 1409 Elk Street: Samuel Dale, a promient Franklin oil and business man and a member of one of the first families to settle in the area, had this house constructed by local builder John Brady in 1874. It is an imposing version of the Second Empire Style which became popular after the Civil War. The tall heavily hooded windows and doors are crowned by a concave mansard roof with bracketed eaves. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
