Welcome to Granville County
The Granville experience is an alternative. An alternative to what you have. A yin, to the everyday yang. Yet this alternative is not far away, but in your own back yard – steps away.
Granville County is not just a location, but a place where you can gather, relax, inhale/exhale, create your own space, and also become part of that space. We are not a destination at which you “arrive” – but a destination in which you insert yourself and interact. Becoming not just a tourist, or guest, but part of a community. A community where quaint gives a nod to eclectic, where small town embraces the heart and soul of hometown, and where rural translates to space to find yourself.

Where We Are
The Granville experience is based on self. Granville County will not exhaust you with an agenda of activities, but rather provide you the space and paths and passageways that you use to define and create your own unique Granville County Experience. An experience that most visitors share with others they bring.
An experience where bicyclist safely discover the countryside. Where youcan take your dog off the leash and share in his exuberance. Where Mother Nature hasn’t been outsourced. Where you can get out on the water and decompress. Where you can sit and have a bite to eat or drink and appreciate that things are different here. Where you can stroll through a park, town street, small shop, or festival….or simply come and be… if only to shed the suffocation and repetition of your everyday.
For we are not like where you came from…we are uniquely Carolina. A Carolina that melds the endearing heart of hometown living with (individual) space, and easy accessibility – a rare fusion that allows you to define “experience” and “gathering” on your terms…. and compels you to come and take a breath, yet be only steps away.
