Danville, PA

Danville is a borough on the North Branch of the Susquehanna River, and is the seat of Montour County. The population is around 4,500.

Danville first began to grow when the North Branch of Pennsylvania Canal was built in the area beginning in 1828. It was named the seat of Montour County shortly after the county was created in 1850. Danville prospered as an iron manufacturing center in the mid-1800s, starting with the opening of the first foundry in 1829, and booming from the 1840s through the 1860s. T-rails for railroads were also produced in the borough. When steel began replacing iron in the 1870s, Danville went into decline, but still remained a manufacturing center into the 20th century.
