Exploring Franklin and Oneonta, NY

I’ve been staying in the village of Franklin, NY for almost a week and when I first came I didn’t expect much more then a few storefronts. Fast forward to today, I’ve completely changed my mind. Franklin is home to quite a few creative minds, fantastic interior curators and a full letterpress shop.
