Description

On the outskirts of Launceston is Franklin House. Built in 1838 for an early Launceston brewer and innkeeper, Mr Britton Jones, it soon became the Classical and Commercial school. The school enjoyed an enviable reputation in the north of the colony for more than 20 years, educating the sons of many prominent citizens. Outstanding features include the joinery of NSW cedar, an original kitchen, clocks, fine china and a collection of fine English furniture with a number of colonial pieces. The school room is also a special feature of the house.
