Taught at a camp here. Kids seemed sweet and generally interested in learning. Town, however, was shockingly run down and there is a high population of low-lifes. I didn't even realize places like this exist in NH.

The beach in seems to be frequented by some serious scum bags. Also door to rest room opens inwards and HAS NO HANDLE ON THE INSIDE!

There is a decent amount of crime here. One of my coworkers houses was broken into while they weren't home. Some teenagers were telling me about a hill that the druggies go to get high. The school struggles due to lack of funding. Teens in the area say there is nothing to do and look forward to leaving Franklin and it's druggies behind. Franklin needs to address the serious drug and homeless issue that is happening under their noses. A promise with a grant to bring some tourism into Franklin may help improve the conditions.

The river is good for kayaking, if they can fix up the area with the grant I think it will improve the area.

Theres nothing to do in the down really /nothing to bring people to our town. THE SCHOOL STiNk specially the Franklin middle school they don't give a f about any of there students really that say they try to help but make things worse most of the time, a lot of them are rude and they hire bad teachers and cut a lot of programs kids like if it's not convenient for them to keep because of budget kits, a lot of the teachers swear and also there's a lot of drama in the town

favorite places are the library because it's like a safe place and also at the parks and at the rec watch out
