Welcome to Granville, Tennessee

The Granville Museum, Inc. was formed in 1999 to preserve the history of the historic 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 that 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 great pictorial collection of pictures that Vincent B. "Moe" DeNardo who was a World War II soldier who came to Granville during the Maneuvers. DeNardo came back to Granville for the next 30 years making street scenes and other captions of the history of Granville.

The Granville Museum has grown through the years with two additions to the museum building as well as expanding many great 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 to the museum allowed the museum to feature its military history, old time school room displaying history of schools and a Agricultural Museum displaying farm equipment.
