This is primarily because of a history of family farms in the area, but is also due to various civic efforts to maintain a rural atmosphere in the area over time.

In recent years, Franklin Township has seen a population explosion that has substantially contributed to property tax hikes to support public school development. The population of the township in 2008 was 36,160.

Franklin Township Community School Corporation is the public school district that serves all of Franklin Township.
