Farm to Your Table Museum
Attached to the Granville Museum building, you will find an area filled to the brim with hundreds of relics that tell the story of rural life in a small farming community.
The "Farm to Your Table" Museum demonstrates the importance of agriculture in our lives and in the lives of those who lived in this area. The story of dairies in Middle Tennessee, including a detailed history of Purity Dairy, showcases a 1934 milk delivery truck originally operated by Ezell Dairy and later used by Purity Dairy. A large collection of glass milk bottles will complete the story of the milk delivery truck.
In addition, you will find many items that provide a history of how milk was processed, stored and used on the farm, including milk cans and butter churns.
Also on display, is a horse drawn carriage used to transport a casket to the place of burial. This hearse was used by Dowell Funeral Home in Granville, as well as Bass Funeral Home in Gordonsville and Carthage.
This museum was made possible in part by a grant from the Tennessee
Department of Agriculture.
