Franklin Township, a rural community established in 1843, is located in northern Luzerne County. It is composed of thirteen square miles of rolling hills and small ponds. Franklin Township has two working farms, Brace's Orchard and Dymond's Farm. The Township consists mainly of single-family houses, with little industrial or commercial enterprise. The Franklin Township Volunteer Fire Company Auxiliary hosts several social events throughout the year, from craft sales and holiday parties to dinners and dances. It boasts two Little League fields and Camp Orchard Hill, a non-profit church-affiliated camp that offers year-round opportunities for children ages 6-18.
