For more than 50 years, patients have climbed the porch steps up to the white clapboard house in downtown Franklin to see their family doctor.

Dr. Merrill Wesemann has treated colicky babies and set broken arms in overactive children. He’s answered expectant mothers’ questions about their first pregnancy, diagnosed heart disease and other chronic illnesses and helped older patients deal with ongoing pain.

Recently, Wesemann and his staff have been dealing with crying patients as much as with illnesses and injuries. Wesemann will retire at the end of the month.
