The area of Danville, located at the end of Highway 147 in Stewart, was once a thriving town on the Tennessee River. The old Danville Grain Elevator is still in the water as a reminder of days gone by, along with part of the old L&N Railroad Bridge that once spanned the river connecting Middle and West Tennessee.
Recently Danville Landing has undergone major upgrades to its facilities. It offers boating, fishing and recreational enjoyment for all. The boat docking facility has been replaced with a new four-boat docking area that is now secured on a hinge so that it will rise and fall with the water level. The Danville area is equipped with a handicapped accessible fishing pier that allows all citizens to enjoy the pleasures of fishing. The runway at McKinnon Field has been repaved and striped.
