"I was mesmerized by it. There is no question about it. I have seen some really pretty properties, but this has such a unique aspect to it. It is a little valley just over the mountain from the highway and there are people within 10 miles of this ranch that knew nothing about it."

Home Owner

Our History

The Location

The population of Franklin, Idaho was 641 at the 2000 Census. Founded Thomas S. Smart on April 14, 1860, in what was then Washington Territory. The town received its name after Franklin Richards. Franklin is the first permanent European settlement in present-day Idaho. However, the town’s founder’s believed the townsite was in Utah Territory. Its political status remained ambiguous until 1872 survey determined the townsite was in Idaho Territory about 1 mile (0.6 kilometers) north of the Utah Territory border.
