The Granby Center Historic District is a historic district in Granby, Connecticut. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1985.[1] The district includes 35 properties in the center of Granby. This section of town was settled in the 18th century, but most of those original buildings no longer exist. The district includes two buildings dating to the 18th century, 24 dating to the 19th century and 8 dating to the 20th century. The buildings are in a mixture of styles, including Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, Italianate, Georgian and Federal. Most of the buildings were used as dwellings, including the building at 4 East Granby Road. The building at 2 Park Place was originally a dwelling, then a hotel, and then reverted to a dwelling.[2]
