Danville (Located in Boyle County) is called the "Birthplace of the Bluegrass", since the first Constitutional Convention in the West was held at Constitution Square in 1792 when Kentucky’s first Constitution was signed. On December 4, 1787, the Virginia Legislature established Danville as a town in Virginia. Danville became a part of the Commonwealth when Kentucky became a state in 1792. Danville, "The City of Firsts", was the location of the first Courthouse in Kentucky (1785), the first U.S. Post Office west of the Alleghenies (1792), the first Capital of the Kentucky District in Virginia (1785), and the first Political Club in the West (1786).
If you're looking for a unique combination of entertainment and small town southern charm, then Danville offers a wonderful alternative to the hustle and bustle of the big city and crowded interstates. You'll find people here friendly, the food delicious, and the sense of community refreshing. There is plenty to see and do for the whole family! (Mainstreet at sunset pictured).
