Franklin Things to Do

  • Franklin on Ice

    Franklin on Ice is an annual event, usually held in February. Ice sculptors gather in Fountain Park and create beautiful sculptures out of giant ice blocks! You can watch them as they sculpt, or just go after they are all done to view the finished products! There is also Chili tasting to warm you up as you walk!

  • Tiffany Windows!

    This is a treasure that many people do not know exists, even those who live in Franklin! At Saint John's Episcopal Church, all of the windows are original Tiffany windows! They are considered to be some of the finest works of Tiffany! How did a town like Franklin acquire such works? Well, during the times when oil was being mined in the area, there...

  • Venango County Courthouse

    The Courthouse was constructed in 1868 in Italiante-style architecture, so it's an interesting historic building itself. Inside, though, there are displays of Native American artifacts found in Venango County. Many of the arrowheads, pots, and tools are hundreds of years old. Entry is free, so if you are visiting downtown Franklin, it's worth a...

  • DeBence Antique Music World

    DeBence Antique Music World is a fun little museum of music players. When you visit, a guide will take you to each player and talk about its history before playing it for you! I was hesitant about whether the museum would be worthwhile, but the guides and the music really make it a fun and enjoyable experience! Some of the players are actually very...

  • A. G. Egbert Memorial Fountain

    The 1896 A. G. Egbert Fountain is a centerpiece of the lovely park that sides the Venango County courthouse. Egbert was a devoted advocate for the park & the elegant fountain commemorates his service.

  • Best Ice Cream in Franklin

    Deets Sugar House is the best place in Franklin to get ice cream. If you get a cone, you should be aware that the sizes are bigger than what you'd expect them to be at Dairy Queen or another ice cream shop. People with children are always entering asking for less than a small! For ice cream lovers, though, this is great! They have a wide variety of...

  • Eat'n Park

    Eat'n Park has a nice breakfast buffet and tasty baked good. When it comes to lunches and dinners, I don't personally like the food very much. I would advise someone to go to Kings or Bonanza instead of Eat'n Park.

  • An American Buffet

    At Bonanza, you can order a meal or you can just get the buffet. You can order food like steaks, and at the buffet, they normally serve macaroni and cheese, tacos, chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, and salad, among other things. They also have desserts, and there is an ice cream machine to make your own sundae. The food here is quite good. I always...
