The Common is also adjacent to Franklin’s prestigious Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School and the historic Hayward Manor (the latter is located at 195 Main Street in Franklin, MA).

The Franklin Town Common features a brick gazebo bandstand dating back to 1917 (a gift of the Hayward family) . . .
