2019 Franklin County Historic Homes Tour

April 27, 10am - 5pm
Lunch Available for separate purchase here


Step back in time and join us for the seventh biennial Franklin County Historic Homes and Gardens Tour, sponsored by the Person Place Preservation Society. We are proud to offer twelve special historic gems that will give you a glimpse of life as it was in the past.

Franklin County and Louisburg, its county seat, were established in 1779, in the midst of the American Revolution. Early settlers took advantage of the county’s abundant creeks and fertile soil, which was well suited to the production of tobacco, cotton, corn, and timber. Louisburg developed as a bustling center of trade for local farmers and merchants.

The establishment of Franklin Male Academy (1787) and Louisburg Female College (1857) reflected local interest in education. The history of the Person Place is closely linked to that of Louisburg College.
