Guided Walking Tours: The Danville Historical Society offers three guided walking tours of National Register Historic Districts. “The Secrets Inside” is a tour of Danville’s magnificent Millionaires’ Row, a part of the Old West End National Historic District. Tour Guide Joyce Wilburn (rightmost with one of her tour groups in the photo at left) is a wealth of information. She relates many stories about the homes and their former owners. This tour is a must for first-time visitors to Danville and the Old West End National Historic District. Call 434-770-1974.
Guided Segway Tours: Bright Leaf Segway Tours also offers historic tours including the Old West End’s Millionaires’ Row where beautiful mansions were built by the tobacco barons along Main Street.

Self Guided: If you prefer, you can also tour Victorian Danville on your own. A 16 page booklet describing each site is available at the Danville Welcome Center or the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History.
