Homesteading in Harper County

Danville

Originally named Coleville in honor of Mrs. E. J. Cole who had laid out the town in 1880, the name of Danville was given to the Coleville post office on January 25, 1882. A group of people from Danville, Ohio, had settled in the area in 1880. They were of French heritage and practiced the Roman Catholic faith. When the town company purchased twelve acres from Mrs. Cole, they changed the name to Danville in honor of their former home.
