This is a view up main street looking west. Danbury is not a metropolis, having a population only a couple of hundred citizens. Stokes county is not heavily populated either, but it is growing. The growth is particularly noticeable on the south side of the county. This area is picking up some of the expansion of Winston Salem. Hopefully the growth does not spoil the beauty of this area.
Hanging Rock State Park is a mountainous area with natural beauty. There are many hiking trails and waterfalls. Of course the main attraction is the Hanging Rock itself. The main entrance to the park is a short distance west of Danbury.
This picture is the Danbury Community Church. I did not go inside of this building, but I was intrigued by the architecture. This building is beautiful in it’s simplicity.
