In 1792, William Montgomery built this mansion at the corner of Mill and Bloom Streets. His gristmill and sawmill were located to the west.
Also that same year, Montgomery’s son, Daniel, developed a nearby tract of land that eventually was called “Dan’s Town.” “Dan’s village would soon be large enough to warrant a post office and become officially known as Danville.”
