Marker is mounted horizontally in the sidewalk.
Inscription. Named in the 1870s after the military scout and surveyor, Charles Franklin (b. ca.1844-d.1924). In 1871, he served as a scout for General Crook, and a year later, helped Sidney W. Foreman complete the first formal survey of Tucson. “Charles Franklin” appears to have been an alias, and his real name was Albert Franklin Banta.
