It is a very nice town to live. Lots of good local restaurants and stores. As well as lovely public parks.
Great little Née England style community. The home of Denison University we have parks, golfing and real sense of community. There just isn’t any downside. The town is big enough to support local businesses and small enough to feel safe and friendly. The schools are amazing and there are so many cultural events and opportunities available.
Living in Granville has been a pleasant experience. Not only is everything I need only a short drive away, nothing is more breathtaking than coming over that hill on Route 37 and seeing everything from the shops on Broadway to the Denison University.
Granville has a rich history and one of the cutest towns in Ohio. The village is full of small mom and pop stores and everyone in the town knows each other.
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.
Quaint, sweet town. The kindest, nicest, most precious place you will ever live. Such a delight to be here.
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.
There is not much night life that happens in Granville. It is a small town that enjoys having a simple life. But one restaurant that everyone ends up going to is Brews. Everyone goes, whether its to celebrate an occasion, meet up with friends, or its a Tuesday. Brews is the local joint that everyone knows as a part of Granville.
Picture a town stuck in the 1950s. Everyone knows everyone, everyone smiles to say hello. In the village of Granville, that's what it is like walking downtown. Everything you could possibly need is in this stuck in time town. Mr. Whitman's frozen custard store, "Whit's," the River Road Coffee Shop, and Ross's Granville Market. I can not stress enough how there is a store for everyone's needs. And all of it is family owned. No chain restaurants, only local businesses. There's a several restaurants, a post office, a book store, a library, a pizza place, a family owned funeral home, a barber shop, a spa, a drugstore, a diner, boutiques, a pet groomers, the list is endless.
