Built in 1929, The Factory occupies the buildings that once served as the Dortch Stove Works, Magic Chef and later the Jamison Bedding Company. A member of the National Register of Historic Places, The Factory is rich with history and a very careful renovation has preserved many of The Factory's original features and architectural details. Calvin bought the sprawling complex seven years ago and, after an environmental clean-up, began opening the facility in sections. Today, The Factory at Franklin has 83 tenants.

Imagine that factory coming alive with concerts, dining, shopping, meetings, live theatre, art galleries, decorators' showcases, antiques and offices. Our unique facility can serve all this and more. Take a look at The Factory in its days as a bustling, working factory, then embark on a photographic tour of its renovation and transformation to the diverse and vibrant shopping and entertainment complex it is today.

  • Had a great time visiting. Really enjoyed visiting with Mr. Ken Mead at his Carousel shop. Fascinating work this gentleman does. 👏
  • So many vendors to choose from and such an interesting historic space! I enjoyed walking around today and browsing many of the shops. The building is a sprawling maze, but that’s half the fun! There are food and coffee options if you work up a sweat walking through the buildings. Of course Five Daughters is unmissable as always. :)
