A frontier settlement, originally called Venango, was an established community and county seat when the oil boom hit. The town grew and prospered with the influx of speculators and businesses, becoming a center of refining activity in the rapidly developing petroleum industry.
A special oil, known as Franklin Heavy Crude, brought wealth but Franklin avoided the "boom and bust" cycle of towns created during the oil excitement.
