Since its incorporation in 1833, Danville has proved one of the Old Dominion State's most interesting and historic cities, ranging from its brief stint as the last capital during the waning hours of the Confederacy, to its role as a major tobacco and textile producer in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, to the city's infamous disasters, such as the wreck of the Old 97. In these images, readers will journey back into the Danville of yesteryear and explore many elements of the city's past: its historic churches along Main Street, its stunning Victorian and Edwardian architectural treasures along Millionaires Row, and many of the city's most recognizable structures, including schools, businesses, and early government buildings.
