The 2020 Granville Harvest Fair has been cancelled due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.

We look forward to once again being part of this wonderful event in 2021!

In the meantime stay safe, stay home, and take all recommended precautions. That's the best way to protect family, friends and strangers, and the fastest way to put the pandemic in the rear view mirror of history.


The NCCHP online store is now offering "America Strong" shirts! These quality t-shirts were donated to NCCHP by a friend of the museum and are available in women's and men's sizes, in a variety of attractive colors. Proceeds benefit NCCHP, with a portion going to Homeward Vets, a Massachusetts-based non-profit dedicated to helping local veterans.

You can order your America Strong shirt by going to the NCCHP store. CLICK HERE


Although the museum is not currently open we have begun to follow the directives set out in Governor Baker's Massachusetts Reopening Plan. Museums are slated to begin opening to the public in Phase Three. The openings will be dependent on the museum formulating a Covid-19 control plan, following reduced admission criteria, employing social distancing, following hygiene protocols and more.

At NCCHP we have started filling out the plan templates and having discussions around what being "Open" will look like to museum visitors in the future. We are looking forward to the day that we can safely welcome our NCCHP friends, members and volunteers to take a step back in time again for the tours and Living History events at the museum. 

In the meantime we are continuing to work on new exhibit space, catalog the Noble & Cooley archives, and make other improvements. NCCHP is also working with the Granville Library Historical Room to continue building the Granville History online site which now has over 2000 images relating to Granville history. You can visit that site and relieve some pandemic boredom by CLICKING HERE.

We hope that you all stay safe and healthy in these challenging times. And remember, there is no better cure for pandemic boredom than finding projects that will exercise your Yankee ingenuity!


Many members have asked about the 2020 membership drive and while May has traditionally been "Membership Month" at NCCHP it didn't feel right to ask people for dues during a pandemic when finances are so tight for so many people.

If you are in a position to donate or pay membership fees at this time it would be greatly appreciated as the museum has had ongoing monthly expenses to "keep the lights on." 

If you need to skip a year we understand. On the other hand if you still can't figure out what to do with your Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) check from Uncle Sam please keep NCCHP in mind!
