My family took Joyce Wilburn´s excellent Tobacco/River-Distric Guided Walking-Tour late October, 2016. Ms. Wilburn was prompt, prepared and gave us a delightful historical overview of the area, as well as a glimpse into the current and potential future uses of many of the old warehouses. It was a real treat to go back in time and learn about the handling... More

We had a terrific guide Joyce Wilburn who was knowledgeable and funny. She is also preparing a walking tour of the Tobacco/River District that will be just as interesting. These are don't miss tours.

I was in Danville on June 22nd and had booked a walking tour with Joyce Wilburn of the Danville Historic Society. I had booked it a few weeks early and it was an easy process via phone and e-mail. It turned out I was the only person on the 90 minute tour but Ms. Wilburn graciously proceeded. We walked along... More

We also had the extra pleasure of taking an internal "first floor" tour of one of the beautiful and classic historic homes that the owners had lovingly restored. The Danville HIstorical... More

This is a wonderful tour of beautiful homes on historical Millionaires Row. The history and architecture of these homes is extremely interesting. Our guide was outstanding with her knowledge as she shared so much information about the period in Danville when these homes and churches were built, This was a most enjoyable tour.

I am an English professor at DCC and scheduled this tour with the help of the Danville Historical Society to connect the community to the classroom. My students were afforded the opportunity to learn information about their neighborhood or a neighborhood close to theirs, that was previously unknown. We were also able to make connections from our discussions in class... More
