The Town of Franklin received a piece of local art last Thursday from the Macon County Art Association, after the Town had granted the Association $1,500 to fund the project last November.

By last spring, the Association completed the piece, a mural of various mediums depicting the 16 waterfalls of Macon County. The piece was displayed at the Uptown Gallery in Downtown Franklin, and then displayed near the fireplace of the public library until last week, where it found its final home at Town Hall.
