Franklin County's First Court House
Visit the home of Major William Russell. The beautiful log cabin in the railroad park is actually of replica of Major Russell's home that was built by local volunteers in 1975. Major Russell was one of Cowan's pioneer settlers as well as Franklin County's first judge. His home, a log cabin located nearby on Boiling Fork Creek, served as Franklin County's first court house! The cabin replica in the park contains various relics and antiques donated by local citizens.
