The old Mill Street Site in Franklin is one of the last sites where you may be able to pull out that rare Margarosanite or Esperite Specimen. Unfortunately the site is currently off limits to collectors and planned for future development. Close to being closed forever. If you are willing to be arrested you can enter but I would not suggest it. Hardystonite can be found here easier than other sites but only occasionally is a rare specimen found. Lots of Willemite, Calcite, Microcline, and Fluorapatite.
