Who We Are : Our Locations

Our StoryOur Staff
Wright Funeral Home and Crematory

Situated in the heart of historic downtown Franklin, this circa 1890's two story Queen Ann home with shingled gables and an 8-bay porch with Tuscan columns , originally served as a private residence. Noted in the historic register for numerous unique architectual features, including a stained glass attic window, the home became the location for WRIGHT FUNERAL HOME in 1976. While the property has undergone significant renovations since that time, most recently the addition of a 225 seat chapel and visitation foyer, great care has been taken to maintain the sense of home-like comfort that has been a trademark of our service.
