Danville CA – A Great Place To Call Home

Terry Tucker:
Danville, California is a very special place. It is a suburb of the San Francisco area and is located in what is known as the East Bay, which is through the Caldecott Tunnel and about 15 miles east of the Oakland Berkeley area. Danville was founded in 1858 by Dan and Andrew Inman. The town got its name after the brothers turned down the name Inmanville, but not necessarily for the obvious reason. Andrew’s mother-in-law was from Danville, Kentucky, and so they decided upon that name. Okay, so it was named after Dan too, but he didn’t really want that to be the only reason they named the town Danville.

Now, Danville has grown tremendously. I moved here in 1981 and the population was roughly about 20,000 people at that time. About one mile from here in the east, where Camino Sasahara and the Sycamore Valley Road meet was “the end of town” in 1981. The only thing that was east of there were lots of ranches and farms and the very, very beginning of the Blackhawk Country Club. Now, 40 years later, the entire area has been built out and the city has flourished. Today, Danville has a population of about 45,000 people and counting. It boasts top-rated schools, magnificent parks, lots of really great restaurants and tons of outdoor activities. One thing about the area that I love is Mount Diablo. It’s the mountain that Danville sits at the foot of. Mount Diablo is about 3,849 feet high and has some great hiking, rock climbing, and it’s a very challenging bike ride to get to the top.

Along with Mount Diablo, there are some wonderful trails in the foothills opposite of Mount Diablo. Between the foothills of Mount Diablo is the Diablo Verde, where Danville, Alamo, Diablo, Blackhawk and San Ramon sit. Some unique things about Danville are the Nobel winning playwright, Eugene O’Neill, lived here while he wrote some of his most famous plays, including The Iceman Cometh, Long Day’s Journey into Night, and A Moon for the Misbegotten. Also, just on the other side of the foothills was a Nike missile silo site. It’s been a factory for decades now, but interesting stuff. This place has been my home for the past 40 years and I absolutely love it. It has also been my pleasure to serve the people of Danville for the past 24 years as a real estate agent. And I hope to be of service for many years to come.
