Ed Silva


?It's a known fact around town that Franklin's Downtown area hasn't always been so picturesque. The historic area had fallen into much disrepair and businesses were not thriving, that is until the early 1980's when locals like Ed Silva saw the potential and started to change all of that. "Ed Silva provided extraordinary leadership in our journey to establish Franklin's Main Street as the heart of our community", said Mary Pearce, the Heritage Foundation's Executive Director. "His passion and enthusiasm for rescuing Franklin's boarded up Main Street has made this 30 year "overnight" success possible. When I need someone to represent the merits of historic preservation, I pick up the phone and call Ed Silva."
