The Midland Theatre The Midland Theatre in Newark has a storied history that dates all the way back to the 1920s when it served as the town’s stunning new entertainment venue. Today, it’s still a pillar of the community, offering programming that suits every taste, whether you’re an orchestra enthusiast or a stand-up comedy fanatic.

Thirty One West Newark’s Thirty One West opened in fall 2016 with a goal in mind: unite the Licking County community through music. This music venue acts as host for performers right in Licking County’s back yard, as well as performers known on a national level.

The Buxton Inn After a day spent perusing the shops on Granville’s East and West Broadway, you might be in search of a place to rest your head for the evening – or weekend. Head a little farther down East Broadway and you’ll run into the historic 19th century Buxton Inn. Book your rooms in the inn’s Main House and you’ll get to stay in the original guestrooms and overlook the inn’s courtyard. 18
