I love the community festivities that go on. During the Forth of July there is a street fair, games, and food. A lot of people who don't live in Granville come and experience it. The first weekend in December is when the Candlelight Walking Tour is held. This is when a bunch of business go out and advertise, a Santa comes, ice sculptures are displayed, the high school performance groups come to play and there is a model train exhibit at the library. When tragedy strikes, the townspeople are willing to help. A high school boy was seriously changed after a car wreck and lots of people helped raise funds for his hospital care. Things like this is what makes Granville homely.

Granville is a reat community to grow up in. It is very safe and family friendly. There is plenty to do and with Denison University here, there is always something to do.
I loved growing up in Granville, OH since I was in 4th grade with the small town atmosphere and friendly people. It is like living in a bubble insulated from the rest of society which I have learned is not such a bad thing and I would live there again. The only problem is the continued expansion of encroachment of Columbus and the build up of areas closer to Granville.
