Drive into the mountains of east Tennessee or western North Carolina, and you can’t help but feel like something went down. 

You feel like the trees in the old-growth have stories. Like stories of the Free Republic of Franklin: a territory given by NC to the Government as a cession for the Revolutionary War debt. A land that lived under the 13-star flag for four and a half years. Lived until they couldn’t get enough support to become a state. A territory that sunk back into the fabric of the mountains just two votes shy. A state lost to the maps, but not abandoned entirely. Still there, in the trees and if you look real hard, you might catch a glimpse of it.

Happy Customers


Beautiful design & high quality

Received this as a gift, and I'm thrilled with it. I'm proud to be able to hang something that represents my state well, and the design looks simply fantastic. High quality, to the point that I purchased another Old Try print when I saw how good it looked. Would recommend.

Five stars and nothing less

This was our second purchase from The Old Try. Their prints make for such a warm welcome in our Atlanta home. Each product is made in the US and made with intention. The company (Micah) is super thorough in communicating order & shipping information (and awesome follow-up emails). Love this'un and all the rest! Thanks again!
