Around Dansville illustrates the history of an important and proud community. Clara Barton lived in Dansville for a decade, and the first American Red Cross chapter was founded here in 1881. The town's famous spa drew many notable Americans, and the first dry cereal and a center for healthy living were developed here. A wide range of products, including shoes of all sizes and giant boilers, were made here and shipped across the country. Around Dansville is a tribute to this rich and colorful past.
