We have our key to Franklin's Old Old Jail!

After hearing a presentation about the renovations in process for Franklin's Old, Old Jail by Mary Pearce, executive director of the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County, at our January meeting, members voted to become involved.  We had budgeted dollars for a conservation community improvement project for this year and today our president Paula Uhlir, Conservation Chairman Lisa Ward, treasurer Kathy Casey and board members Gail Miles, Jean Hairston, and Liz Martin delivered our first payment towards obtaining becoming a "Key Club" member to Mary Pearce, took a tour of the jail, and picked out our key!  What a wonderful historic preservation project and tourist attraction for our county this is!!!
