Fabulous Fifties:

See the 1953 Chrysler, our tribute to Nick’s Candy Kitchen and other Johnson County drive-ins and hangouts, and a collection of 1950s memorabilia.

Do you remember the early days of the Artcraft Theatre in Franklin?


The Johnson County Museum has on display the Popcorn machine that was used in the Artcraft during the 1950s, and other Artcraft memories.For more information about the museum's Manley Aristocrat popcorn machine, and the Artcraft's "popcorn lady", visit our YouTube page.
