More than 150 years ago, settlers made their way to the mountains of Western North Carolina. While the land had been long since inhabited by the Cherokee Indians, pioneers took over the region piece by piece. In 1855, the Franklin area began to be developed as early settlers started to make their lives in the Macon County we now call home.
The history from past generations that is still alive in Franklin today is the reason Gregg Clark set out to begin Where Shadows Walk, Franklin’s haunted history tour. The tour is a combination of classic walking tours, both evening and late night versions, and a unique storytelling event held at Franklin’s Historical Museum.
