Granville is an unincorporated community in Jackson County, Tennessee, United States.[1] Granville was the birthplace of U.S. Senator Albert Gore, Sr., father of former Vice-President Al Gore.

Granville is surrounded by the Cordell Hull Lake on three sides.

A museum of local history, the Granville Museum, provides exhibits and interpretive displays on the community's past. The museum also sponsors festivals and other special events.[2] The museum's resources document the lives of numerous families active in the years before and during World War I. Resources include census records and the Sutton Store's ledgers.
