Known as “The Fair City”, Franklinton is home to undeniable small town charm and big time fun. Here, life flows as smoothly and as beautifully as the nearby waters Bogue Chitto River.
Real estate in Franklinton is as varied as the culture here. You’ll find single-family Louisiana cottages along traditional, one and two-story Southern homes. Your new dream home can join the ranks of other homes in the area that feature massive lots and beautifully manicured landscapes.
Franklinton is a community that thrives on enjoying the beautiful, outdoor scenery of New Orleans. During the days of summer, you’ll find locals enjoying a lazy day tubing on the Bogue Chitto. There’s also always a crowd at White Sands Lake Day Beach where you can kayak, lounge on the beach, or play on the inflatable slides and trampolines. The Bogue Chitto State Park is another popular attraction for camping, fishing, hiking and other outdoor activities.
Perhaps what Franklinton is most famous for is that it's home to the country’s largest free fair – the Washington Parish Fair. This annual fun-filled event is held the third week of every October, and truly offers something for everyone.
Another positive is that Franklinton is located approximately 70 miles north of New Orleans, so you’re never far from the fun of the Big Easy. This community has held strong to its small-town values while offering residents a wonderful place to call home!
