The Next Generation (NGHF or Next Gen) of the Heritage Foundation is comprised of members ages 21 to 40. The Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County is a 44-year-old non-profit membership organization whose purpose is to protect and preserve the architectural, geographic and cultural heritage of Franklin and Williamson County and to promote the ongoing economic revitalization of downtown Franklin in the context of historic preservation. Since their inception in 2006, Next Gen has hosted ‘Historic Socials’ at local historic homes, hosted the last event held in the Historic Franklin Theatre, chaired homes during Historic Franklin’s Tour of Homes, published their very own cookbook A Taste of Historic Franklin and hold an annual (and wildly popular) fund-raising event,Three Blind Vines,where all proceeds benefit the long-term sustainability of the Franklin Theatre.
Next Gen hosts a monthly “Membership Mixer” on the fourth Thursday of each month around 7:00 p.m. The location rotates around various Downtown Franklin venues. Whether you’re a current member, interested in becoming a member or just want to network with other young professionals in the area we invite you to come out!
