The first Franklin Tavern began life in 1846 as a general store situated higher up on the hill. Licensee Elijah Brown decided to move the hotel closer to the road in 1853 – it became the Franklin Hotel and was later renamed the Federal Hotel.
In 1979 the present owner, Kon Reitler, purchased the hotel and undertook an extensive restoration program, changing the name to Franklin Tavern.
