Built in 1922, the Granville Presbyterian Church now serves as our wedding chapel. The all-brick building with its center lancet window and twin steeples is striking in appearance. One tower contains a church bell from the 1880s, which we believe was originally installed in the 19th century church that this building replaced. You are welcome to ring the wedding bell on your big day!
The interior of the church features high wooden ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors, complemented by its uncommon curved pews of varying sizes. The front and side elevations feature tall windows with century-old glass, that lets in light in a lovely way. The walls are white and accented with wooden trim. The floors slope toward the front, where they meet the rostrum. There is a back door which leads into a small room (originally used for storage) so that the groom and groomsmen might enter from the rear. As with the Mercantile next door, we believe that all wood was milled here in Granville. We have kept all the original lighting.
Due to the historic nature of the church, the building is all original, meaning we have not added a bathroom or air conditioning. (Both are readily available just a few steps away inside the Granville Mercantile.)
