North Carolina's historic county of Granville, nestled in the rolling hills of the Piedmont along the North Carolina-Virginia border, was named for Lord John Carteret, Earl of Granville, in the mid-18th century. The home to Declaration of Independence signer John Penn, Granville was once recognized for its educational centers and tobacco-based economy. Although the county has become more industrial than agricultural in recent years, Granvillians hold fast to their rural heritage, honoring and remembering the hardships early settlers triumphantly faced to mold a better life for both themselves and future generations.

Images of America: Granville County is a pictorial retrospective illustrating many of the county's achievements, both large and small. Vintage photographs, highlighted by informative captions, relay the arrival of the railroad and the towns of Creedmoor, Stem, and Stovall, which grew up along the tracks; the development of Oxford, the county seat; the construction and usage of Camp Butner; and various other events from the late 19th and 20th centuries. Images also feature past residents, offering longtime families the chance to see loved ones and newcomers the opportunity to connect faces with local names.
