Danville, Kentucky and its downtown have lots to offer a visitor, business owner, or resident. The preserved streetscape has a quaint charm, and there are important chapters of history to discover rooted in the spaces and places of downtown from the story of the birth of the Commonwealth of Kentucky to the pioneers of a regional medical industry. Alongside this history you will find innovative and unique businesses – local pubs and microbreweries, day spas and long-time barbershops, surgery centers, and photography studios. Perhaps the most important part of Danville’s charm is the sense of community. We support big happenings downtown like the Great American Brass Band festival and Oktoberfest, but we also look out for each other in our day-to-day work and activities.
The Heart of Danville is part of the Danville Boyle County Economic Development Partnership and we collaborate with our partner organizations on promoting business development and sustaining our quality of life and local character. The Heart of Danville focuses on fostering historic preservation and social and economic vitality in downtown Danville, because it houses so much of the history and identity of our larger community and because the intimate and vibrant environment is ideal for meeting up with friends and family, shopping, dining out, or carrying out business.
