South of Denver and east of Castle Rock, Franktown is a small village tucked off the beaten path. At first glance, the town seems to be only a crossroads, with a few cafes, a Mexican restaurant, and gift boutiques. Appearances can be deceiving.
The history of Franktown, CO, includes Franktown Cave. It’s on private property, about two and a half kilometers southwest of Franktown. It is a large rock shelter where evidence of prehistoric societies dating back to 6400 B.C. has been identified. Artifacts included hide, wood, fiber products, maize, and other plant materials. During the 1940s and 1950s, more than 4000 objects were retrieved from the cave.
