Danville is a city in the administrative region of Estrie, in the Canadian province of Quebec. As of the 2011 Canadian Census, the population was 4,070.HistoryDanville is on a stretch of the Chemin Craig, a road built in the 19th century connecting Quebec to New England. The town is about 70mi north of the Vermont border. American loyalists from New England began arriving in 1783 and gave the town its name in memory of their hometown in Vermont of the same name: Danville, Vermont. The founder of Danville is Simeon Flint, and he was a resident from Danville, Vermont.Until ±1971, the population of Danville was in majority Anglo-Protestant. This proportion was reversed during the mid-1970s when part of the younger generation migrated to English Canada, Montreal region or New England.The city has many heritage buildings, including three Protestant churches (Christian Adventist, Presbyterian and United Church of Canada), two Anglican churches, an Evangelical Baptist church and a Roman Catholic church. The Presbyterian church as been retrofitted into a 4 stars restaurant and the Christian Advent church is now a private residence since 2007, following is closing in 2006. The actual catholic church was erected in 2003, following the burning of the former one in 2001 which was erected in 1891. The actual United church is a construction completed in 1875 for a Congregational parish, and is the oldest church of the town. One of the two Anglican Church of England churches is located on a historic site on the country side, near the border of the Shipton Township, Denison Mills.
