A group of prospectors attempting to find a shortcut along the east flank of the Monitor Range discovered silver in Danville Canyon in 1866.  Not much happened until 1870 when a mining camp was organized.  After two years, the mines were abandoned.  A revival large enough to support a post office took place in the 1880s.  After much on again, off again mining for several years, Danville finally became a true ghost town.  Danville is very secluded.  Both wood and water are available for camping.
