The 16th annual Granville Heritage Day, entitled “Take A Magical Journey Down Memory Lane,” will bring history of the past alive in a great way at the Sutton Homestead Pioneer Village and adjacent property.

This year’s event, to be held Saturday, will feature an expanded Pioneer Village featuring the 19th Alabama as they operate an 1860s village demonstrating all aspects of life of yesteryear. The village will also feature craftsmen of yesteryear featuring broom making, soap making, wood carving, weaving, blacksmiths, basket weaving, grist mill operating, gun smith and much more.

Civil War units from across Tennessee will come together on a new expanded area of Heritage Day to do Civil War living history demonstrations and re-enactments in memory of Joseph M. Williamson Jr. A large encampment will be set up with all aspects of life during the Civil War.

A special two-act Civil War play will be presented at the Granville United Methodist Church at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. entitled “Officer House Massacre,” which will reflect the great historic Civil War tragedy. At 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. at the Confederate Historic Area, a re-enactment entitled “How the Confederates Got Their Supplies” will be portrayed.
