Our Mission

   The Granville Museum encourages the knowledge and appreciation of Granville County history, general history, the arts, and sciences through preservation, collection, and interpretation. We are committed to serving as an educational resource and inspiring our community to create a better future.  

Our History

The Granville County Historical Society was incorporated in 1964.  Throughout the years, the Society has been involved in many projects to preserve the history of this area.  From establishing a marker for the
first Court House at Oxford Plantation, to indexing records, to collecting artifacts,
the Society has been actively securing and protecting bits of Granville County history for over 50 years.

The purpose of the Granville County Historical Society is to discover and collect material
which helps to establish or illustrate the history of the area and 
preserve these items through the museum, administered by the society. 

The Granville Museum is owned and operated by the Granville County Historical Society,
a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  We operate through memberships, donations, sponsorships,
obtaining grants, and fundraising events.  Your memberships and tax-deductible donations
help preserve the vital heritage ofGranville County and help support the Granville Museum.

 Join us in our pursuit to continue to bridge generations!​​​​​​​
