Welcome to the Granville Historic Image Library. This site is a joint project of the Granville Public Library Historical Room and the Noble & Cooley Center for Historic Preservation, located in Granville, Massachusetts.

We invite you to browse our collection of images relating to Granville and the surrounding area and suggest you begin by looking over the Useful Tips link to the left. The site search function is also very helpful when looking for family names, places, events and so on. Note that while the search function is helpful it may not identify every instance of a search term, especially in handwritten documents, notes, and non-searchable files.

Please be sure to view the "Mysteries" collection featured below and help restore the stories that belong with these orphans of history.
