Who lives behind those tiny doors in Dansville?


Fairy Doors of Dansville is a fully accessible trail of little doors, each one a unique piece of folk art that often reflects the nature of its host’s business or location.  There are 23 whimsical little doors located in the business district, with several more in the trees of Pioneer Park next to the Dansville Area Historical Museum.  Use the free map to seek out the locations of all the doors, and stop by Dansville ArtWorks or Dogwood Trading Company to receive a surprise!
