Lodging in Granville

The Buxton InnGranville is the home of two historic inns that offer food and lodging: the Buxton Inn and the Granville Inn, which are both located in the 300 block of East Broadway.

The Buxton Inn

In 1812, Orrin Granger, a pioneer from Granville, Massachusetts, built "The Tavern" on land that was purchased on 1806. That tavern, now known as "The Buxton Inn", has been operated continuously since that date in 1812. It is Ohio's oldest continuously-operated inn in its original building. The Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Inn operated as Granville's first post office and as a stagecoach line on the line between Columbus and Newark.

The inn has been expanded into a carefully and lovingly restored complex of four buildings that offer 25 lodging rooms filled with antiques. The inn also offers seven dining areas, elegant gardens, and cascading fountains.

The Granville Inn

The stone and half-timber structure was designed by Frank L. Packard, a prominent Columbus architect. All of the sandstone was quarried at Bryn Du.

According to the newspapers of the time, the Inn's opening on June 26, 1924 was attended by as many as 5000 people.

The Inn, located in the heart of Granville, offers a full-service restaurant and pub, 27 traditional guest rooms and three suites, along with banquet, meeting, and catering services.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the inn’s old-world charm, hand cut oak paneling, native sandstone and rural hospitality make it a place for great escapes.
