Virginia, administratively independent of, but located in, Pittsylvania county, south-central Virginia, U.S. It lies along the Dan River, just north of the North Carolina border, 45 miles (72 km) northeast of Greensboro, North Carolina.Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History, Danville, Virginia. MarmadukePercy The earliest settlement on the site was known as The Ford at Wynn's Falls (a site visited by explorer William Byrd in 1728). Chartered in 1793, it became an inspection warehouse and river transport point for tobacco. After completion of the railroad (1848), it became one of the nation's largest flue-cured, bright-leaf tobacco markets. During the American Civil War, Danville was the site of a Confederate prison camp; more than 1, 300 Union prisoners are buried in Danville National Cemetery. For a week following the fall of Richmond (April 3, 1865), Danville was the seat of the Confederacy; the Confederate Memorial Mansion, now the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History, is known as the Last Capitol of the Confederacy.Development of the Dan River Cotton Mills (later Dan River, Inc.) in the 1880s made the city a leading textile centre. The mill complex, once the largest single-unit textile factory in the world, finally ceased operation in 2006. The city's manufactures include tires, furniture, and glass and wood products. Cheap hydroelectric power for the city was gained by harnessing the falls (pinnacles) of the Dan River. The city owns and operates thePinnaclesHydro-Electric Station, completed in 1938. Danville has two institutions of higher learning:Averett College (1859) and DanvilleCommunityCollege (1968; originally a technical school established in 1936). Lady Astor (nee Nancy Witcher), the first woman to sit in the British House of Commons, was born (1879) in Danville. Inc. town, 1833; city, 1870. Pop.

Top five shed-buying tips
1. Wooden, metal or plastic shed?
Wooden sheds are made from softwoods - usually pine (sometimes referred to as redwood or red deal) or spruce (white deal). A few are larch or Douglas fir and, in theory, these should be slightly more resistant to rot. Most rot-resistant of all are cedar sheds, but these are almost twice the price of pine ones. Most sheds sold in the UK are made from wood, but there are other options. Metal sheds won't rot or burn down, but they aren't exactly pretty and can be tricky to assemble. Also, condensation tends to drip from the roof of these, limiting what you can store inside. Some have sliding doors, which won't blow shut when you're struggling to bring in bulky items. Plastic sheds are relatively maintenance-free, and usually fit together easily. Taking them apart when moving house should also be straightforward. However, their looks may not appeal to all. Whatever type of shed you decide on, be sure to check out the best and worst shed brands before you buy.
2. Shed size
If you have space, we'd recommend you opt for a shed measuring at least 6ft x 8ft. This size has double the floor area of a 6ft x 4ft shed, and room for a work bench along one side. If the shed is to go in a very confined space, make sure you know its precise dimensions. The size quoted by the supplier may not include the roof overhang.
With time, a flimsy shed is likely to develop a sagging roof, distorted sides and a door that won't shut properly. Check for sturdiness by standing inside it, jumping in the centre of the floor and pushing against the centre of the side and roof panels. You should feel firm resistance rather than flexing. Also, check that the wooden timbers supporting the roof have no large, dark-edged knots, as these are prone to fall out.
4. Keeping the rain out of a shed
Wooden sheds often leak and rot because of rain running down the walls. To minimize such problems, the roof should overhang the sides by at least 5cm, and the front and back by at least 7.5cm. Measure from the inside edge of the roof, not the outside. Rain is less likely to run inside the top and bottom of a door if it has a strip of wood (weather bar) over it to deflect the water. Ideally, there should be a weather bar at the bottom, too. Windows are prone to rot at the bottom unless they have sloping sills with a drip groove - a groove cut beneath the sill to help water drip to the ground. When standing in a closed shed, the only place you should see daylight is through the windows. Avoid sheds with gaps - if they let in light, they'll also let in rain.
5. Shed access
You'll need to ensure that those who will be using the shed can get in without tripping over the doorway threshold or banging their head. Also, check the doorway is wide enough. Single doors range from about 3ft wide to just 2ft 2in. The wider the opening, the wider the items you'll be able to bring inside. If a shed you like has poor access, check whether higher eaves (allowing extra headroom) and/or a wider or double door are available as optional extras.
