I love living in this small town. People are friendly for the most part. The traffic isn't like in the city. We only have one traffic light and it's a blinking yellow light. If you blink while driving through the center of town you'll miss it. It consists of two buildings, town hall and the fire and police department. Don't blink!

Don't expect a very exciting town. Danville is a relatively unexciting rural town with not much activities. There are the basics: a church, baseball fields, a small park, a town market, a library, for the most part that is it. During the summer there are usually movies being played at the main baseball field, and there is always the annual Old Home Days. There are, on occasion, events going on in the Fire Hall, but they are usually tied to organizations such as the Cub Scouts. Danville Elementary School is a solid school for children with enough accommodations and teachers for the students who attend, and is tied to the Timberlane School District (known for its all-star wrestling team, music program, and theater program).
Beautiful, quiet, wooded town in a semi-rural area of southern New Hampshire. Great place to raise a family and has a good school district. Close enough to the coast, Boston, and the White Mountains/Lakes Region. LOVE this place and can't wait to move back home.
