Danville Neighborhood Getting National Recognition

Posted:
Danville, VA - A neighborhood in Danville is getting national recognition.

Just west of downtown, Mechanicsville Historic District joined the National Register of Historic Places.
    
It was placed on the Virginia Landmarks Register earlier this year. Mechanicsville was developed in the late 19th century as an ethnically mixed residential area.
    
One significant landmark in the area is High Street Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King made a speech in the 60s.
