The Village of Danville is known as “The Gateway to Amish Country”. We are the trailhead/terminus for both the Kokosing Gap Trail and the Mohican Valley Trail that extends to the Bridge of Dreams in Brinkhaven.

Located on U.S. 62, 15 miles northeast of Mount Vernon, Danville is a thriving community of 1,100 residents with homegrown pride and down home values. Home of the second oldest Catholic parish in Ohio, St. Luke Catholic Church, Danville’s roots run deep. The original Danville was laid out by George Sapp, Sr. and Robert Waddell in 1813 and was named for Daniel Sapp, a soldier in the War of 1812. Danville later merged with 2 smaller villages, Rosstown (Rossville) and Buckeye City, to create the village that is seen today.

Small stores to shop and places to eat are plentiful in the community and we offer many activities for visitors to our village. Come and enjoy the small town atmosphere that our village has to offer.

In June, the Danville-Howard Turkey Festival is held at the Danville Community Park with games, rides, contests, and food dominate the three-day event where friends and family find time to get back to the basics of life.

While in Danville, take advantage of the two trails available. If you are a horse enthusiast, be sure to bring your horse and travel the Mohican Valley Trail, a trail open to any non-motorized mode of transportation. This trail runs from Danville to Holmes County. Runners, bikers, and walkers enjoy the scenery of the Kokosing Gap Trail that runs from Danville to Mount Vernon.
