The Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County announced this week several changes to its brand in honor of the nonprofit’s 50th anniversary coming up on Nov. 12.

Representatives from the cities of Franklin, Nolensville, Thompson’s Station and Brentwood were present as Chief Executive Officer of the Heritage Foundation Bari Watson Beasley announced several changes to the organization’s name, logo, website and tag line.

“As we commemorate 50 years, we refresh our look to reflect who we are today and symbolize our vision for the future,” Beasley said.

The new name for the preservation organization is officially the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County Tennessee with a new tagline of “History, Preservation, Community.”

“We feel these three words beautifully reflect the mission and vision of the Heritage Foundation,” Beasley said.

After “extensive internal conversation” from the Heritage Foundation Board, they unanimously decided to change the name, “in an effort to be fully inclusive of every part of Williamson County,” Beasley explained.

“Our vision moving forward is to continue the outstanding preservation efforts here in Franklin, and support the fabulous work of our Downtown Franklin Association, while also continuing to focus on preservation needs throughout the county,” Beasley said.

Some of the projects they look forward to partnering with in surrounding cities in the near future include, continuing the preservation of the historic Nolensville School.
