History

The town of Franklin is situated on a bench between Cub River, Maple Creek and Spring Creek, which streams encircle the town so completely that it almost becomes an island surrounded by meadow land. The farming land in the immediate vicinity of Franklin is, as a rule, rich and productive, and all kinds of cereals can be raised successfully, thought only the hardier fruits do well. Franklin was first settled in 1860 as one of the original eight settlements in Cache Valley. Like some other settlements it was supposed to be in Utah, but when the boundary line between Utah and Idaho was established in 1872, Franklin was found to be in Idaho, which gave the town the distinction of being the first permanent Anglo-Saxon settlement founded in Idaho. The total population of the Franklin Precinct was 805 in 1930.
