 What's New

    Welcome to the Franklin, New Hampshire USGenWeb Page. The town of Franklin lies in the northeastern part of the county, and is bounded as follows: On the North and East, by Hill, Belknap Co. and Northfield; on the South, by Boscawen; and on the West by Salisbury and Andover.
    The territory embraced within the bounds of the present town of Franklin originally comprised a portion of the towns of Sanborton, Salisbury, Andover and Northfield.
The first settlement of the town was made in 1748, near the Webster place, where a fort was built and occupied for several months. To Philip Call and his son Stephen is ascribed the honor of having been the first permanent settlers within the bounds of the present town, at that time a portion of Salisbury.
