Franklinville, North Carolina established in 1847 is an idyllic former textile mill village located on the banks of the Deep River. Centrally located in North Carolina and Randolph County, Franklinville enjoys relatively mild seasonal weather and is within a few hours drive of the Atlantic coast and the Smoky Mountains.
For 140 years life and work in Franklinville revolved around the two textile mills located on the banks of the Deep River. With the closing in 1979 of the last textile mill, our town experienced a decline in services, opportunities, and growth. In the last few years however, efforts by many citizens has begun a rejuvenation. Work is proceeding on establishment of a four-mile Deep River Rail Trail for hikers, bikers, and kayakers, and implementation of a Textile Heritage Museum in a portion of the 1838 Franklinville Manufacturing Company mill. Please check back as we provide periodic updates on ongoing activities in our Town.
Dogs Running At-Large: A number of serious incidents have recently occurred in our community due to pet owners not obeying the Town’s leash laws. Due to these incidents and our citizen’s inability to safely walk town streets without fear of being set upon by loose animals, the Board intends aggressive enforcement of the Town’s leash laws. Ordinances having to do with animal enforcement laws are handled for the Town by the Randolph County Health Department. Citizens having animal control problems should call Animal Control at
