Town Hall, 1830 Danby Road, Ithaca, NY 14850
Meet us under the Dotson Park pavilion. All Danby residents are encouraged to attend to learn about what’s been happening in the park during the past year, as well as the exciting plans for the natural playground, disc golf course, mound makeover, trails, and more. There will be an election of new board members, as several board members’ terms expire.
The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
