Inscription. The Granville Opera House stood on this site for one hundred years. Built as a Baptist church in 1849, the building was moved here in 1882. On April 7, 1982, it was destroyed by fire. This bell from the church tower was first rung on Sunday June 29, 1872 to announce the death of the Reverend Samson Talbot, fifth president of Denison University. It also rang out the hours and sounded the fire alarm.
