Welcome to the Borough of Franklin

Franklin Borough – a small town with a big heart: incorporated in 1913; located in Sussex County in beautiful Northwestern NJ; having a population of just under 5,000 people with an area of 4.6 square miles; designated by the NJ legislature as the “Fluorescent Mineral Capital of the World”; widely recognized for its mining history and rich zinc and iron ore bodies containing more than 150 minerals, many of which have fluorescent properties and some found nowhere else in the world.

Today, the Borough’s strategic location and natural beauty have helped it achieve recognition as a great place to live, work and shop. Franklin’s amenities include a beautiful pond recreation area, schools and parks in a rural setting, with the added convenience of nearby commercial activities.
