I have lived in Dansville for several years. The people here are working hard to craft a better community, but the lack of opportunities and seclusion of the village makes the area not ideal. The town is quaint and needs love to overcome the downfalls.

Dansville is a small town with many family owned businesses. It is a family friendly area with a lot of potential to grow.
Dansville does have different areas that have more crime than others. Its no different than anywhere else. For that most part its really a low key town, its quiet, peaceful, and everybody minds their own business.
