Inscription.  Granville cemetery was once part of the great Wea Plains and still contains many species of the original prairie vegetation. This is one of the last remnants of the Indiana prairies that covered much of Tippecanoe County. It is preserved and managed as a memorial to the Indians and early settlers to who these grasses and flowers were once familiar.
