You will find the rural town of Franktown just South of Parker off Highway 83 in Douglas County. There is only one zip code for Franktown - 80116. This town was named after the honorable J. Frank Gardner back in the late 1800's. At the crossroads of Highway 83 and 86, you will find the retail shops and the Stagecoach Inn. Nearby, you will find the Castlewood Canyon State Park, which is very popular in the summer months (or even on sunny days) to hike and bike.
The historical museum is located in an old one-room schoolhouse. Exhibits contain archeological remains, farm tools, mining remnants and more. In the 1800s Grange halls dotted many Western towns. While a number of halls have fallen into disrepair, this 19th-century political movement continues helping rural areas to this day. The local Grange is one of Franktown's most famous relics, lying just north of downtown. A historical marker at this 1905 structure explains this unique political and social farm club.
