Meeting House: Danville's Crown Jewel

An Old Home Day celebration has been a tradition in Danville since 1911, when the fourth Sunday in August was designated by the Olde Meeting House Association as the day former Danville residents were encouraged to return home and visit with old friends. A church service would be held in the Old Meeting House with refreshments following in the rear courtyard. As years passed and lifestyles changed, the Association felt that the program would be greatly enhanced by offering entertainment, reenactments, and yet retain the original parameters set forth by the founding fathers. With the Old Meeting House, “Danville's Crown Jewel”, as venue, 2012 is the first year of what we expect will become a new annual tradition for families in Danville. The history of Old Home Day was offered by Bill Gard, right, president of Danville Historic Society and at left, Danville Boy Scouts raise the American flag to begin the day-long festivities.
