Granville grand opening

Historic Granville, Tennessee’s Mayberry Town, held the grand opening on June 13 of the Mayberry-I Love Lucy Museum, with Richard and Linda Cox cutting the ribbon and a large crowd attending the event. The Cox’s recently donated a large collection of “I Love Lucy” items they had collected for over 30 years to make the museum possible. Others have donated extensive collections of Mayberry items to the museum as well. The museum will be open Wednesday through Friday from noon to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum is part of the town tour of Granville which includes Granville Museum, Sutton Homestead Historic Home, Pioneer Village, Farm to the Table Museum, Post Office and Barber Shop Museum, two car museums and saloon and ice cream parlor museum. For more information call 931-653-4151 or granvilletn.com. Randall Clemons, president of the Granville Museum said that the museum is a great addition to Historic Granville and to Middle Tennessee. He added that the town has just been recognized as Tennessee’s Mayberry Town. The summer outdoor Mayberry Dinner Theater will feature Charlene’s Baby with a great night of entertainment and bluegrass music by One Way Out of Lebanon. The summer theater will occur on July 30-31 by reservation.
