Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History (DMFAH) is Danville’s Cultural Center for the Art’s and for History. The DMFAH also serves the outlying communities of Pittsylvania and Caswell County. We aim to share the stories of all our collections: Art, Civil War and Civil Rights — and also aim to facilitate ways for the local community to share their own stories. We want to connect Virginians and Danvillians with the rich history of the Dan River Region history and culture.
The Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History is a House Museum located in the former home of Major William T. Sutherlin, entrepreneur, Mayor of Danville, tobacco tycoon and Quartermaster during the Civil War. Built in 1859, the Sutherlin Mansion is one of the finest examples of Italianate architecture in Virginia. During the time the Sutherlin Mansion was a segregated Library 1960's this is where important Ciivil Rights sit-inns occurred and where you can now see Danville's Civil rights Timeline. The site is on the National Register of Historic Places both for its Civil War and Civil Rights histories and also holds a collection of 20th-21st century Southern Painters. The Danville Museum of Fine Arts is located on 975 Main Street in Danville Virginia – a couple of block away from Averett University and downtown Craghead street where the River District is.
