Stovall

Stovall is located in Granville County along US 15.  The town was named in 1887 after John Stovall, who donated the land for the community's railroad station.  Stovall, however, had a more interesting name prior to this.  The town was originally incorporated in 1883 as Sassafras Fork - named such after a group of large sassafras trees at a nearby crossroads.
