Franklin in Williamson County, Tennessee — The American South (East South Central)
The Working Farm
Kids living on the farm were encouraged to participate in 4-H clubs and FFA by raising animals. Work on the farm was hard, but you could always take a dip in the Harpeth River during a break!
This walk was created by Girl Scout Sophia Saliby from Troop 2701 for her Gold Award Project.
