Noble & Cooley Center for Historic Preservation

NCCHP is a new museum created to preserve & incorporate the rich history of Granville and the surrounding areas. The museum is housed within the historic buildings of the Noble & Cooley drum factory. The buildings & original equipment at the site offer a unique opportunity to experience "Yankee Ingenuity" as it impacted manufacturing from the mid-1800's forward. Here are a few of the photos taken July 4, 2008 by the NCCHP:
