About Our Town

Granville lies near the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest, on scenic Route 100 in the state of Vermont, USA. Founded in 1781, Granville has a lot to offer. From it's diverse history to it's pristine natural beauty, you will be glad you stopped by for a visit...

Granville was granted by Gov. Thomas Chittenden of Vermont, November 7, 1780, and chartered August 2, 1781 to Reuben King, and sixty-three others, taking it's name "Kingston", from King. This name was retained until November 6, 1833, when for some local prejudice on the part of the inhabitants, it was changed by the Legislature to Granville. Originally, the township is said to have contained 23,040 acres. Land surveys after 1781 reported that the territory was:


...generally rough and mountainous, containing large tracts of rocky soil. The land is valuable due to the extensive growth of heavy timber there, and a broad valley of excellent alluvial land, watered by the White River, whose numerous branches come rushing down the mountains on all sides, forming a network of clear, cold water, as sparkling as crystal."
--The Gazetteer Business Directory of Addison County, Febuary 1882

Today, Granville contains 33,600 acres. 14,616 acres are designated National Forest, and 1,171 acres are designated as State Forest. Granville, Vermont USA is currently home to 303 residents.
