The Granville Historical Society Museum will open for the 2019 season on Friday, May 3. Featured are a host of new exhibits celebrating the history of Granville and showcasing artifacts from the Museum’s archives and collections – some of which have been rarely seen.
The exhibits will focus on a variety of themes among them “...and the band played on” which celebrates more than 200 years of marching bands in Granville and showcases a collection of vintage instruments.
The “Pioneer Collection” includes antique items that helped early settlers carve out productive lives as they built the foundations of Granville’s future.
And an exhibit titled 'have a seat' showcases benches, chairs, and stools from the Granville's past.
The Granville Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) will celebrate their 110th anniversary with a commemorative exhibit of materials highlighting their mission and service.
These and other exhibits of items of commerce, historic tools, and even courtship round out other areas of the Museum.
The Museum is located at 113 East Broadway and is open from 1-3 Friday and Sunday, and 12-4 Saturday. While donations are gratefully accepted, admission to the Museum is free to visitors of all ages. And in addition to engaging exhibits, the Museum offers a wide selection of books on Granville history as well as a Research Center open every Thursday from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
