This Historical Society initiative has led to a new collaboration with the City of Danville: the development of a Heritage Walking Trail in Danville’s historic downtown and Tobacco Warehouse District. Local attorney R.J. Lackey conceived the idea for a heritage walking trail and soon learned that the DHS had two trails. Working with Mr. Lackey and the City of Danville, the DHS is helping map out the overall proposed trail, linking the two existing ones with the new ones. The DHS will also research and create content for information kiosks and signage along the routes of the trails.
