The NCCHP Archives Project has just digitized and made available online the first of the Granville Town Reports that were recently donated to the museum.

Although it sounds like a dry topic, there is an amazing amount of detail concerning town expenses and the school system, all the way down to who was paid to shovel snow, and who achieved perfect school attendance. Your Granville ancestor(s) could well be mentioned in the report. If you are a researcher looking into late 19th century life, there is a wealth of information about cultural values and how things were done. The School Committee report is especially enlightening.
