Although it is removed from the hustle and bustle of its southern neighbors Raleigh and Durham, Granville County, North Carolina, has influenced the history of the state and the nation. It has produced sports stars, award-winning authors, influential state political leaders, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and an agricultural heritage second to none. Author Lewis Bowling discusses these important figures and paints an intimate picture of Granville's past from Christmas celebrations to tobacco harvests in his column Looking Back in the Oxford Public Ledger. Collected for the first time, these articles are sure to delight all who know Granville County as home.
