Thanks to Barry Kyle from Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia for sending a treasure trove of stories and pictures about his Grandmother Annie McLean Kyle who lived in Graniteville. The McLean’s ran the Golden State Hotel - pictured below. It burned down in 1949. Stay tuned for more!

The Graniteville Volunteer Fire Company wants to thank everyone who made the annual parade and picnic a big success! We had one of the best turnouts ever! The parade and picnic was followed by a Bluegrass show by Shepherd Canyon Band at the schoolhouse for a rockin’ good time. Fun was had by all!

This year the parade starts at 11:30 am and the picnic will follow at 12:30 at the schoolhouse. All are welcome! This year there is $25 price for best parade entry and $25 for best dressed pet!
As usual, there will be free hot dogs and soft drinks, plus the wonderful dishes that appear as if by magic from friends and residents. Tickets for raffle prices are $1 and Beer is $1.
Come and support the Volunteer Fire Department and celebrate a good old fashioned Independence Day in Graniteville!
