CENET’s J-1 participants training in Nashville, TN, visited historic Franklin this week. A highlight of their trip was meeting with Mayor Ken Moore at City Hall. During their visit with Mayor Moore, the participants learned about Franklin’s historical significance, including information about the Battle of Franklin during the American Civil War.
Following the meeting, the participants were taken on a walking tour of Main Street. In order to fully experience Franklin’s unique culture, the day also included a diversity of food and beverage stops at various local staples. The participants tried coffee and baked goods at a cafe, they sampled fudge for the first time at a candy shop, and they enjoyed authentic southern cooking at Puckett’s.
