The Danville Grange was a farmers' association and the hub of the community in the late 1800's and early 1900's. The Grange was instrumental in bringing many improvements to the valley over the years, such as San Ramon Valley High School, a public library, streetlights, and the railroad. The Grange provided social life for farm families isolated on their farms. There were potlucks and dances on Saturday nights. Harvest feasts were held at the Grange Park located in front of the hall. The current second floor is the original part of the structure. The building is now owned by the Town of Danville and functions as an art gallery and theatre.
