Granby Mill Village Historic District is a national historic district located at Columbia, South Carolina. The district encompasses 97 contributing buildings associated with a cotton mill and associated mill village. The mill was initially constructed in 1896-1897, and is a large four-story, rectangular brick building in the Romanesque Revival style. It features two projecting five-story entrance towers. The Granby Mill Village includes a number of "saltbox" style dwellings reminiscent of a New England mill village. The district also includes the mill gatehouse, the two-story mill office building (c. 1902), commercial buildings, the Gothic Revival style Whaley Street Methodist Church, and operatives' houses.[2][3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.[1]
