Stop by Southern Living’s Custom Home in Hallsley

Since opening our doors in 1933, home lending has been a big part of who we are. As we expand our residential and commercial lending offerings, we wanted to do something fun in the community to support and thank local builders. To that end, Franklin Federal is proud to be sponsoring the Southern Living Custom Builder Home in Hallsley, a premiere neighborhood in Midlothian.

Between now until July 6, people can stop by to view the English-cottage style home with a wraparound front porch and open-concept design from Creative Home Concepts. Entry is just $10 and all proceeds go to Operation FINALLY Home and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. For floor plans, ticketing and more information, visit the Hallsley webpage at

Mechanicsville Turns 1

full group outsideOur newest branch, near the intersection of Mechanicsville Turnpike and Bell Creek, is turning one this year.  After a quick renovation in early 2013, we opened our doors on May 20th with a celebration of Richmond mascots. Since then, we’ve been embraced by the Hanover community and our new neighbors.  In fact, check out this article that ran in the Mechanicsville Local, celebrating the branch’s partnership (as part of our Pillars of Our Community initiative) with nearby non-profit senior community, Covenant Woods.

Prior to opening this stand-alone location, Franklin Federal serviced our Mechanicsville residents from Hanover Square Shopping Center, just up the road.   Our new branch features a modern design, drive-thru banking, a full-service Financial Center (which provides financial advising services) and our residential Mortgage Center.

Stay tuned for updates on our Fun Friday events during the month of June.
