Victoria Woodhull: Phoenix Rising
The Robbins Hunter Museum boasts the first memorial to Victoria Woodhull in the United States, a memorial clock tower. Given by Robbins Hunter to the village of Granville as a bicentennial gift, Hunter wanted the clock tower to inspire interest in Woodhull and her place in history and further, to inspire future generations to study and be inspired by her.
Because of this, and due to our proximity to Woodhull’s birthplace in Homer, the Museum, in partnership with Denison University and supported by Ohio Humanities, has organized a multi-year project that focuses on the multi-dimensionality of her legacy, Victoria Woodhull: Phoenix Rising.

Donations to the effort of creating a factual, sourced, resource reflecting the lives of Victoria Woodhull and her sister Tennessee Claflin are always welcome, no matter how large or small. If you find our efforts useful or enlightening, please consider giving a donation to help this project move forward.

Support the Jill Griesse Historical Garden
The Jill Griesse Historic Garden at the Robbins Hunter Museum at Avery-Downer House creates an amazing outdoor garden and performance pavilion that celebrates the life of Jill Griesse. The garden and daffodils are a "a collection of a lifetime."
This garden is an educational all-season landscape in the heart of the Village of Granville and establishes the Robbin Hunter Museum as a leading expert on gardening within our community.
The garden honors the late Jill Griesse and her passion for daffodils, gardening and the Robbins Hunter Museum. The Griesse family has graciously offered to gift to the museum a selection of Jill’s priceless daffodil collection. The museum has developed a design for the landscape that includes elements required for a sanctioned American Daffodil Society (ADS) display garden in honor of Jill.
You can be a part of Granville history and have your name or a loved ones placed in the walkway of the Robbins Hunter Museum. A brick engraved to your specifications will be placed along the West entrance. This is a unique opportunity to honor special people in your life and leave a lasting impression on Granville. Commemorate your vacation, a wedding, birthday, anniversary or any other special occasion. Capture a moment in time with a brick that you can visit for years to come.
Each brick donation of $100 includes a certificate that can be presented to the person or organization being honored. In addition, “stories” from donors describing the honoree will be placed on view at the museum.
