Welcome to the Granada Historical Museum. We are
located right on Main Street in the former Granada Methodist Church. We
invite you to stop by and see the bell tower dedicated to two former
churches and browse around inside.
Once inside you will travel back in time looking at
old photographs of how Granada once looked. You will visit many old
businesses that once called Granada home from three different banks to
the early schools and also reminisce of old friends.
The many different displays of Granada’s past from
Friendship quilts, Granada Veterans to objects telling a story related
to citizens or businesses in the area. The front door of the Bakken home
where Mr. Bakken was almost arrested for stealing the schoolhouse in
1888 and a primitive cupboard from the Handy family are some of the
earliest artifacts on display.
There is something of interest to everyone. Local
artisans show their talent, many school related items to vintage
household, clothing, advertising and farming utensils. The museum is
dedicated to the Granada, East Chain and Huntley area.
