Featured Project

Frechette Building

This project renovated a building that was built in the early 1970s to replace a historic building. The work from this project brought the look of the building closer to the historic look of the downtown. It has become home to a restaurant and retail businesses.


Featured Project

650 Hurricane Street

The Franklin Economic Development Commission awarded FDC $33,000 to help turn this house into an affordable single-family home. The Property Recovery Task Force approved the budget to rehabilitate the exterior and interior.

This home is now for sale.
