A website to help promote Franklin County life, tourism, and businesses was launched last week. Virtual Franklin County Texas can be found at www.vfctx.com. The original purpose of the website was to provide an internet presence for businesses and organizations in and around Franklin County. It has since grown to include a variety of local information. For more information, see the July 30 edition of the Optic-Herald, or visit the Virtual Franklin County site through a link provided here.
