New uses for Franklin building envisioned

A new city market, fraternal lodge and restaurant or office space are the latest ideas for a vacant building in downtown Franklin if a city board decides to sell the property.

Three groups submitted proposals for the former G.C. Murphy building, on East Jefferson Street, to the Franklin Redevelopment Commission, which owns the building.

All three groups proposed to buy the building for $1, and two asked for incentives from the city board to help with their planned renovations, which range from $200,000 to $400,000.
