Franklin is located in Macon County within the Nantahala National Forest, between Almond and Highlands North Carolina. Franklin sits along Highway 28 on the banks of the Little Tennessee River near Cullasaja River Gorge, Otto, and the Scaly Mountain Ski Area. Franklin is best known for its gem mines, history and heritage, and for the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains.
