Next Gen

The Future

The Next Generation (Next Gen) is a division of the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County.  We are the future faces of preservation, comprised of members ages 21 to 40.


Whether you grew up locally, recently moved here, or just love the area, we probably appreciate Williamson County for the same reasons. We invite you to join us in helping protect and preserve the architectural, geographical and cultural heritage of Franklin and Williamson County, and to promote the ongoing revitalization of downtown Franklin in the context of historic preservation.


This bustling historic district didn’t just happen. It took a community. And now, it’s time for the “Next Generation” to get involved not only for today, but for the generations that will come tomorrow.


Our active Next Gen members host monthly membership mixers, plan socials at local historic homes, help plan events, and fundraise for preservation projects (they raised $100,000 to pay for the marquee at the Franklin Theatre!). Membership is $50/year. Become a member today.
