New Pocket History coming soon: Granville Firefighters

The 7th volume of our popular Pocket History series will soon be available:  a history of Granville firefighters written by B. Kevin Bennett.  Stay tuned for more news on how to order your copy!


From a 19th-century team of loosely organized volunteers responding to the village bell to today’s highly trained professionals, the firefighters of Granville have been keeping the Village and Township safe for two centuries.

In this thoroughly researched volume, B. Kevin Bennett recounts the history of firefighting in Granville, including the story of the most famous fires (the 1927 Broadway fire and the 1982 Opera House fire), the Department’s relationship with Denison University, and the way that the organization and infrastructure of Granville’s emergency services have changed and adapted over the years.

Coming early November, 2017.
