GRANVILLE — Since the 1960s, Granville’s tiny town office has been on a small plot of land with no running water.

Last Wednesday, Granville celebrated the grand opening of its renovated town hall and new town office, located in the town’s former schoolhouse. Town officials said Sen. Patrick Leahy was instrumental in landing the low-interest loans and grants that allowed them to complete the project, and though Leahy was in Washington at the time, Marcelle Leahy, his wife, spoke on his behalf at the ceremony on Route 100.
