Presenting the Past: The many lives of Danville's Town Meeting Hall

by Beverly Lane

Danville's Town Council and commissions meet regularly in a historic building at 201 Front St., called the Town Meeting Hall. This building led many lives in its 50 years before it became the Hall. Front Street was Danville' original main street and the Danville Presbyterian Church (1876), a handsome steepled church, once stood on the site. A huge redwood tree near the church has a plaque stating that the tree was planted in honor of the first pastor, Rev. R.S. Symington.
