We visited the historic Hincheyville neighborhood in downtown Franklin, where homes on West Main Street are known for their Halloween decorations. In particular, there’s one house that embraces Halloween in a big way with a front porch and yard filled with decorations and even a haunted garage for kids and adults to enjoy.
Hincheyville was the first subdivision developed in Franklin back in the 1800s by Felix Grundy, James Irwin, and James Trimble. The neighborhood was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1982.
On Halloween, Franklin Police Officers will close West Main Street and Fair Street to vehicle traffic between 7th & 11th Avenues, and 9th Avenue between Natchez St. & 96W from 5pm-9pm for trick-or-treaters. Because of the influx of visiting families expected to trick-or-treat in Hincheyville, Franklin Police will share any cancellation or postponement news from that neighborhood on the City’s various social media channels.
Take a look at our video below of the historic home.
