A BIT OF HISTORY Isaac and Sophia Seale, retired farmers, built this residence in 1902. In 1914, it was sold to Hiram Darby, who worked in the rubber industry. From a heritage point of view, citizens of British origin have bequeathed to Granby its most beautiful residences, its oldest streets and its most harmonious architectural. This choice heritage reflects, even if the Anglo-Saxon community was never really large, at most 1,500 people in its most prosperous years, its economic and social supremacy has left such a deep heritage imprint that neither time nor modernity has succeeded in erasing it.
