    Adam Hochstetler

    Welcome, I’m Adam Hochstetler, manager of Franklinton Branch. Inspired by curiosity, I seek new stories, books, experiences and knowledge. One of my favorite books is Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything. I enjoy walking, cycling, cooking and spending time with my family and friends. 

    Stop by – I'd love to show you what we offer at Franklinton.
