Danville Historic District
Millionaires Row and the Old West End National Register Historic District boasts some of the best Victorian and Edwardian domestic architecture in all of Virginia and North Carolina.
Many of the mansions built by the tobacco and textile barons of the late 19th century still stand as testimony to the wealth and power of those industries.
