Once promoted by its boosters as an ideal location for the Delaware County seat, this community was officially platted in 1836 by John Gregory, David Shideler and Peter Thomas. It is the successor to Georgeville, platted a short distance up the Mississeinewa River some four years earkier but which failed to survive the competition with Granville. For many years Granville was an important trading site, its importance waning in the latter half of the nineteenth century as
railroad lines gave the edge to both nearby
Eaton and Albany.
