Granville, Tennessee is truly a mayberry town you read about in books and see in movies.

A historic riverboat town, this place packs a lot of history and charm alike. 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.
