Towns > Granville

Granville, NY

Located in Washington County near the Adirondack Mountains and the New York-Vermont border, Granville gained popularity in the 1800s for its multitude of slate quarries. In fact, the town has even been called the "Colored Slate Capital of the World" on account of the fact that rare colors of the stone have been mined here.

Furniture-making is also a thriving industry in Granville, as Telescope Casual Furniture and Manchester Wood both have their headquarters in the area.

Popular attractions in Granville include the Pember Library and Museum of Natural History, the Slate Valley Museum, Hicks Orchard, and the Mettowee River.
