After the publication of Images of America: Granville County in 2002, author Lewis Bowling was approached by numerous residents who owned vintage photographs and wished their treasures could have been included. Rather than simply regretting the absence of these images, Lewis Bowling has compiled a second, brilliant volume to showcase these never-before-seen photographs and postcards. Granville County Revisited is a fantastic companion to Granville County. The second volume includes classic photographs of the Granville County Courthouse, Hall's Drug Store, Oxford College, Creedmoor High School, Camp Butner, Abram's Plains, and many other Granville County landmarks. With over 200 vintage black-and-white photographs, the book explores Oxford, Creedmoor, Butner, Stovall, and other surrounding communities. Every page reveals another aspect of the evolution of Granville County, its buildings, streets, and people. The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.collections and family albums, with detailed descriptions of the county. This book's singular quality will delight longtime residents and newcomers alike, while assisting the area by preserving its history for future generations.

North Carolina's historic county of Granville, nestled in the rolling hills of the Piedmont along the North Carolina-Virginia border, was named for Lord John Carteret, Earl of Granville, in the mid-18th century. The home to Declaration of Independence signer John Penn, Granville was once recognized for its educational centers and tobacco-based economy. Although the county has become more industrial than agricultural in recent years, Granvillians hold fast to their rural heritage, honoring and remembering the hardships early settlers triumphantly faced to mold a better life for both themselves and future generations. Images of America: Granville County is a pictorial retrospective illustrating many of the county's achievements, both large and small. Vintage photographs, highlighted by informative captions, relay the arrival of the railroad and the towns of Creedmoor, Stem, and Stovall, which grew up along the tracks; the development of Oxford, the county seat; the construction and usage of Camp Butner; and various other events from the late 19th and 20th centuries. Images also feature past residents, offering longtime families the chance to see loved ones and newcomers the opportunity to connect faces with local names.

Thomas MCAdory Owen, 1866-1920, was at one time Head of the Alabama State Dept. of Archives and History together with his wife Marie Bankhead Owen. In An explanatory note to these records Mr. Owen states that he visited Granville County in Dec. 1895 to examine the official records for a genealogy of the Owen and Grant families of Grassy Creek, also the Williams family. In the process, he conceived the idea of preparing a history of the county, and the county clerk placed at his disposal 10 of the old "Minute" and "Record" books prior to 1800. He noted that there were some gaps in the records, particularly from May 9, 1776 to Feb.. 4, 1777, when apparently no court was held, as the pagination was continuous in the Book. He abstracted just about everything, and he listed the documents he did not abstract. This includes wills and inventories, bastardy bonds. (lots of these), apprenticeship indentures, marriage and bonds etc. Some documents that he considered important he copied in full. His notes start in 1746 and most stopped after the Revolution, but he continued the marriage bonds to 1815. The records this book is taken from are as follows: Vol. I, county court minutes, 2 Dec. 1749-4 Dec. 1750 & Record Book 1750-1761; Ibid, Vol. II, 5 March 1750/1-21 Sept. 1759; Ibid, Vol. III, 1759-1767 lost; Ibid, Vol. IV, 3 August 1768-20 July 1770; Ibid, Vol. V, 5 May 1774-3 Feb. 1778; Ibid, Vol. VI, 7 August 1781-6 Aug. 1783; Vol. II, minute & record book 1760-1762; Vol. III, minute & record book 1762-1765; Vol. IV, record book 1765-1772, county court minutes 2 Feb. 1767-3 May 1779, county court minutes 19 July 1769-18 Aug. 1772; Vol. V, minute & record book 4 May 1774-1782; Vol. VI, minute & record book 1782-1785 and 6 Nov. 1781-5 May 1785; Selective Marriages License Bonds, Coroners Inquisitions.
