The town is fortunate in having rich farmland where several modern farms aid in making Washington County one of the leading dairy counties in the state. The land also provides other agricultural endeavors such as maple sugaring with many family run sugarhouses producing Maple Syrup, candy and other Maple products. Fair Season offers Maple ice cream and Maple cotton Candy. From early summer through fall the lands are rich with u-pick strawberries, apples and miles of other varieties of fruit and berries.
Granville is proud of its two elementary schools and its junior/senior high school. They are all well-kept buildings served by an excellent staff of qualified and dedicated teachers. Playing fields adjoin each school with the addition of a football field and track for the high school.
Granville enjoys a pleasant relationship with its neighboring Vermont towns. The New York State Certified School System draws high school students from the Vermont towns of Wells, Poultney and Pawlet and offers continuing education to adults in the area.
Several beautiful churches extend their steeples skyward throughout the Granville area. Many of them were built by the ethnic groups of the population: Welsh, Slovaks, Poles, and Irish, who took pride in the building stone, stained glass windows, decorated slate roofs, and the oak pews and pulpits inside. We have many active church congregations of various denominations.
