    West Georgia legend in the first half of the twentieth century. This legendary psychic is most remembered for her role in the

    murder trial of John Wallace which later became a best-selling book and movie, Murder in Coweta County

              And while you are here take a walk on Franklin's Kite labyrinth.The labyrinth is off to the side of a lovely concrete-paved

             walking trail that runs alongside the Chattahoochee River for 1 mile. You may park behind the Three Rivers (formerly Chatt-Flint)

             Regional Commission Center building, where the trail begins. Approximately 60 yards into the trail, you will see the labyrinth

             above you to the left. It is kite-shaped in honor of the electrical experiments of Ben Franklin, our City's namesake.

            There are benches at the entrance/exit and center of the labyrinth covered in stained glass mosaics portraying some of

            Ben Franklin's inventions and accomplishments.
