Please Support the GHS by shopping through "Amazon Smile"

Now there's an easy way to support the Granville Historical Society that costs you nothing. If you are an Amazon customer, we'd love for you to start shopping through Amazon Smile and direct 0.5% of your purchase to the GHS. Bookmark that page and you will get the same prices, deals, Amazon Prime privileges, etc., but Amazon sends a bit of its proceeds back to us.  Every penny helps!

We also appreciate direct donations, and you can learn more about donating (Paypal, check, or in-kind) here.

Thank you as always for supporting the Granville Historical Society!
