Granville Firefighters: The Story of a Community Institution

8.00

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.

The publication of this volume was made possible by a generous gift from the Granville Foundation.

The Pocket History series presents short, readable introductions to topics in Granville's history.

An e-book version of this book will be coming soon.
