Walnut Cove and Danbury are situated on the Dan River in northern North Carolina. Walnut Cove's first settler arrived in 1750, and the area was officially incorporated in 1889. After incorporation, Walnut Cove grew into an industrious town that featured a gristmill, a blacksmith shop, and a branch of the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. Located 10 miles northwest of Walnut Cove is Danbury. Danbury was chosen as the county seat when the county was divided in 1849. While no official Civil War battles occurred in the town, it supported the Confederate army by operating the Moratock Iron Furnace, which is preserved today as Moratock Park. Additionally, the Stokes County Museum of History is located at the Wilson Fulton house, a wonderfully preserved mid-19th-century home in Danbury. Around Walnut Cove and Danbury showcases the rich industrial and community history of these notable North Carolina Piedmont towns.
