You might have heard of a makerspace. It’s a buzzword that’s been floating around for a few years now. But what, exactly, is it? A makerspace is a room that contains tools and components, allowing people to enter with an idea and leave with a complete project. The best part is that makerspaces are communal. The goal is to work together to learn, collaborate, and share. Most importantly, makerspaces allow us to explore, create new things, or improve things that already exist.
The Franklin Center For Innovation, Inc. (501c3) is happy to announce our partnership with the Thorn Hill Education Center, Dilly Dilly Farms, and the CommonWealth Garden.
This partnership will create a Community Garden growing on the grounds at Thorn Hill and offer a collaborative learning environment for sustainable gardening systems.

The Frankfort Crafted Market is a handmade multi vendor shopping experience for unique, local artisan-made gifts and treats.

Your destination for buying local, and every purchase supports local artisans here in our city. The Frankfort Crafted Market offers unique and unforgettable merchandise at an extremely modest price point, giving you the opportunity to give that perfect gift for yourself or someone else, every time.
FCFI will foster an environment of sharing and collaboration between the different sectors of our community. From business (large and small), education (K-gray), government (national, state, and local), and private (anyone that wants to grow their knowledge base).
Maker … a person that makes or produces something.
By creating a culture of sharing ideas and making, we will all work together to research, design, and then create needful things or products to sell.
Since startup companies lack many resources, experience and networks, incubators provide services which helps them get through initial hurdles in starting up a business. These hurdles include space, funding, legal, accounting, computer services ...
We look forward to bringing all aspects of our community together. We will strive to provide a clean and safe environment for sharing and learning. We will regularly have theme nights, special interests meetings, game nights ...
We understand that there are less and less environments where a family can gather to work on projects and ideas.
We look forward to providing that space to our community.
FCFI will create and provide project-based learning curricula, after school programs, day camps, and drop-in projects for parents and children to work on together. Kids today need places to learn hands-on skills and crafts.
Your first place is home & family. Your second place is work. FCFI is a third place to go to find new things, friends, ideas & edutainment. We will have regular theme nights, special interests meetings, game nights, movie nights, group projects and anything else we can think up.
