For over 40 years August Knispel, lifelong Franklin resident and farmer, served the Township, Hunterdon County and his dairy profession in positions of leadership. From 1964-97, he sat on Franklin's Township Committee and was Mayor eleven times. In 2002 he became Franklin's only resident inducted into the New Jersey Elected Officials Hall of Fame. An imaginative, fair and courteous leader, August focused on protecting Franklin's soils and water quality and on keeping the community rural and beautiful. In gratitude for his lifetime of service, Franklin honors August with this straight, true, strong and steadfast stone that echoes the qualities of his character.
