However, by 1875, local industry was gone and agriculture, primarily dairy farming, was the staple in Granby. The town still retains the huge, well known milk bottle which houses a dairy bar. Granby retains its historic charm, accentuated by its original meeting house green, a fine neoclassical library and a good stock of Greek revival houses.
The large portion of the Holyoke Mountain Range in Granby serves as a key recreational attraction. Also notable is the Granby Dinosaur Museum, which is renowned for its collection of local dinosaur tracks. One footprint discovered in 1973 is from a Theropod dinosaur estimated to have been 50 feet in length. Professor Peter M. Galton of the University of Bridgewater determined the fossil to be the first record in the world of a Theropod of such magnitude of the Triassic Age. Other attractions include the historical Aldrich Mills and the Granby Congregational Church, on the town’s picturesque Common.
