Towns in the County
This map of Franklin County shows the towns with a 1-mile buffer around them. Residences are red, with those in the buffer in yellow. No Franklin resident lived more than 6 miles from a town or village.
The map is based on GIS data and soil type data derived from a 1978 U.S. Geological Survey soil map. The map is derived from a D.H. Davison map of Franklin County, published in 1858. The Davison map has been georeferenced at the Virginia Center for Digital History, using ESRI Arc Info to produce a Geographic Information Systems map and database of households.
