We are a neighborhood of 352 single family homes located just minutes from downtown Franklin, Tennessee. Started in the mid-1990s, our neighborhood offers a community pool and playground, sidewalks, street lights, an active neighborhood watch and over 20 acres of common area. Our homes are zoned for elementary and middle schools in both the Williamson County School District and the Franklin Special School District, and to Franklin High School for grades 9-12.
The Founders Pointe community, which was developed in the 1990s, has a rich history. After being occupied long ago by the ancient Stonegrave Indians, it was part of a huge land grant to Major Anthony Sharpe, a veteran of the Revolutionary Army. It was then known as Poplar Grove because of the tall forest of Poplar trees.
Major Sharpe sold 640 acres to Abram Maury in 1799. During that same year, the Tennessee General Assembly created Williamson County (named after North Carolinian Dr. Hugh Williamson, a signer of the U.S. Constitution). At the same time, the city of Franklin was founded and named after Williamson's good friend Benjamin Franklin. Abram Maury surveyed and laid out the City of Franklin. As more people moved to the area, another county was created in 1807 and was named after Maury. Abram went on to be a man of consequence in the area, becoming a State Senator and member of the U.S. Congress. The Maury family homestead was located in what is now Founders Pointe, and the family cemetery is now part of Founders Pointe common grounds.
