About Granville

Granville  is a quaint, New England-style community located in Licking County (east central Ohio) along the western edge of the Appalachian Plateau. It is the home of Denison University. The Village has a permanent population of 3600+ and a total population of 5700 when the college students are in session.  (2010 Census Data).

Granville was settled by New Englanders from Granville, Massachusetts and Granby, Connecticut (neighboring New England communities), who were interested in moving west to find more fertile farmland. Both communities were represented in a scouting party that was sent to Ohio to identify and evaluate property for future settlement. The returning party recommended the purchase of land in what would become Granville Township and the Licking Company was formed in 1804 with 107 subscribers to purchase more than 29,000 acres of land.
