Inscription.  The Village of Granville was founded in 1805 by New England settlers from Granville, Massachusetts and Granby, Connecticut, who sought more fertile farmland. Before leaving New England, the Village design was based on a traditional New England town model. Despite Granville's desire to become an industrial city, all major transportation systems passed it by. Granville did become an important educational center with the founding of the Select School for Women in 1827 and later Denison. University in 1856. Granville has retained its small town charm characterized by quaint, locally-owned shops, historic homes, churches and tree-lined boulevards through perseverance and preservation.
