Granville United Methodist Church



The Cumberland river brought settlers to Granville in the early 1800s.  From about 1831 until 1920, Granville was a thriving riverboat town.  After riverboat travel ceased, the community was a successful farming area. In the early 1970’s, the river covered farmlands when the Cordell Hull Dam was built. Families relocated and Granville became a ghost town.  The river breathed new life into this community in the late 1900s, creating a perfect vacation site.  Since 1999, Granville’s mission has been to become a historic destination, telling the story of a small, riverboat farming community. 

Today, visitors magically step back in time, in Granville: Tennessee’s Mayberry Town.  A trip to Historic Granville offers many rewards, including unmatched natural beauty of the hills and the lake.  This Mayberry Town offers a full-day agenda as a historic destination.
