about us

Robbins Hunter Museum in the Avery Downer House is one of America's preeminent examples of Greek Revival architecture. Built in 1842 by successful business man Alfred Avery, it has been a centerpiece of Granville life. It began as a home, became a fraternity house, and is now a museum housing a fine collection of American (especially Ohio) decorative arts collected by Robbins Hunter and left to the people of Licking County, Ohio. Meticulously restored to its 19th century elegance, the building is home to educational and entertainment opportunities for the enrichment of the Granville Community. The mission of the Robbins Hunter Museum is to inspire appreciation and understanding of the architecturally significant Avery-Downer House, its collections, and the stories of those who lived here.
