Danville Fire Station

The Danville Farm Defense Fire District began as a volunteer brigade in 1912.  In 1921 a state law allowed establishment of special fire districts, with authority to levy taxes.  In 1923 a lot was purchased for a firehouse.  In 1925 it was sold and a new lot purchased, all three transactions at the same price!  This became the site for the first firehouse, at present day 356 Hartz Ave. – the building is still intact.
