These 147 images include photographs, newspaper clippings, and original records from the town of Franklin, in Crawford County, Kansas. It is located on U.S. Highway 69 alternate, approximately 7 miles north of Pittsburg, Kansas. The post office was established in 1908 and now operates as part of the post office in Arma. The town was struck by an EF-5 tornado in 2003 and much of the town has been rebuilt since that. Historically, Franklin was a coal mining town, and the major coal companies in the area were Western Coal and Mining, and Central Coal and Coke. The subjects of these materials include: schools, churches, businesses, coal companies, musicians, miners, the unions and strikes--including the Amazon women's march--and baseball, soccer, and basketball players.
