During this semester, out of all the places we visited, my favorite was the tour of Franklinton. I have an interest in restoration and Franklinton holds a lot of potential to be restored to its former glory. The town holds a lot of history and just by walking down the streets you can catch glimpses of the past and start to understand what went on there years ago. On the tour we visited Strongwater, a new restaurant that opened in an old building that they renovated. Instead of building a new restaurant from ground up they restored and old building adding modern pieces and finishes while keeping the worn exterior.While in Franklinton we also visited the old fire station. This building too has been reused. The last place I took interest in was the Columbus Idea Foundry because it is a place that encourages art and provides a safe place to express creativity for a reasonable price. Franklinton as a whole may look like a crumbling town but underneath the broken up bricks and trampled weeds is a town full of opportunities.
