School History
Franklin school district was formed in 1859 and since that time has absorbed all the little schools in the southwest part of the Elk Grove district: Point Pleasant (1866 to 1928); Goethe (a district formed in 1910 that never built a school); Mokelumne (1861 to 1949); and Prairie/East Union (1856 to 1914). The school was organized as Franklin Academy, an ambitious plan to serve all the area's farm students including those of high school age. The name comes from the Franklin House, a stage stop built by Andrew George whose mother's maiden name had been Franklin. He had not intended to name the town after her, for he preferred that the town was Georgetown, after himself. But, it appears that the people over the years liked Franklin better than Georgetown, and it has been said that there was confusion with the Georgetown in the foothills. We continue to call the place Franklin today as it has been for many years.
