A little taste of history
Our family has a few Franklin fall traditions…and one of our favorites is a visit to Gentry’s Farm to pick our own pumpkins, wind through the corn maze, and take a tractor ride through the fields to see baby cows and hear a little local history.
This year we got a special treat. The day we visited Jimmy Gentry himself was sitting out near one of the stables in an old rocking chair watching children play on the tire swing. As we rounded up the troops to head to the tractor ride, a man handed us a sketch by “coach” himself of our daughter enjoying the tire swing. What a fun souvenir…a drawing by a living legacy at his historical home.
