TNVacation press release

Historic Granville will have the second season of the popular outdoor

dinner musical play "Journey to the Promised Land" on May 6th & 7th.

The play was written by Granville native Ogeal Halfacre Webster

telling the journey of early settlers from Granville County North

Carolina to Granville.  The love story is a three act play with

music provided by the Cookeville Community Folk Orchestra. 

The play was performed last year and was a great success as it is

performed in the Sutton Homestead Pioneer Village in front of

the 1820 Williamson Cabin.  It has props of a Covered Wagon

and takes you back in time as the Roberts Family and other setttlers

leave their home for the Promised Land. Granville is part of the

Promised Land Trail done by the Department of Tourism in which

this play promotes this important trail across Middle Tennessee. 

The play will be performed on May 6th and 7th at 7:00 p.m. with

dinner served from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Reservations are required

and can be purchased by calling 931-653-4151 with tickets costing

$20.00 including play and meal.  The play is done in conjunction

with the Cornbread & Moonshine Festival on May 7th.  ​
The Granville Museum, Inc. was formed in 1999 to preserve the history of the riverboat town of Granville, Tennessee as well as preserve the historic Granville church of Christ building. The museum was formed by people of the community who had a strong interest in Granville. The incorporators of the Granville Museum were Joe Moore, Patsy Yates, Lloyd Clark, Suzanne Stafford, Jeanette Dalton, Eugene Duke and Randall Clemons. The museum opened on Memorial Day Weekend of 1999 with its first Heritage Day. The museum was able to have a great pictorial history of Granville due to a collection of photographs taken by Vincent B. "Moe" DeNardo.  DeNardo was a World War II soldier who came to Granville during the Maneuvers and returned annually for the next 30 years capturing the history of Granville through the lens of his camera.

The Granville Museum has grown through the years with two additions to the building as well as expanded collections of Granville history which cover family history, businesses, churches, schools (both private and public), agriculture, Cumberland River, military, music, clothing, books, and numerous other special collections. The two additions allowed the museum to feature its military history, an old time school room displaying history of schools, and an Agricultural Museum displaying farm equipment.
