The Factory At Franklin is home to some of Music City's finest arts, crafts, and antiques. Housed in a 12-building dining, retail, and entertainment complex, The Factory is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The perfect establishment for patrons looking for a break from large chain stores and malls, the Factory offers a variety of restaurants and activities for the whole family. They're also corporate-friendly and offer offices, meeting rooms, and special event facilities for the business traveler.
More than just a center for shopping, the Factory was carefully renovated to preserve many of the structures' original features and architectural details. The rich history of the complex and the love put into its renovation can be felt in each and every store. Conveniently located just six blocks from historic downtown Franklin, (only 15 miles from downtown Nashville), the Factory is the perfect spot to start a day trip or end an evening's adventure.
The Factory offers an enchanting array of jazz music in their award-winniing restaurant, Saffire, and its center and halls are often used for weddings, anniversary celebrations, and large birthday extravaganzas. For shoppers with a unique style, the Factory is also home to one of the largest antique stores in Nashville. This is more than a trendy shoppers dream; it's an adventure for history lovers and aficionados.
