On Wednesday, Sep. 16, at 7:00 p.m., Lyn Boone will present a talk and slide show about the history of the stucco building on Broadway that has housed 158 years of Granville commerce and activities.
Now housing the popular Brew’s Cafe, the building at 116 E. Broadway was built in the mid-1800s by William S. Wright to house his dry goods store.
Eventually divided into two store fronts, numerous businesses have called the building home, as have families who lived in the apartments that once filled the upper floor. The Masonic Lodge added a third story in 1912, accounting for the date still visible on the façade. Learn the full history of this iconic Granville building in a presentation by Lyn Boone.
