About This Old House

Once the home of Dr. Perry Watson Miles family. In addition to his practice, Dr. Miles served many years on the local school board. He passed in 1947. His son, P.W. “Watt” Miles Jr., raised here, served in the U.S. Navy during WW II and founded a local newspaper — The Commercial Appeal. Watt passed in 1973.

The property was converted to three apartments sometime before 1960. However, with much of its original trim and fireplaces intact, its return to an elegant single-family residence is eagerly anticipated.

From 1980 until 2018, the home was owned by the Martin Donelson family. This family was descended from John Donelson, a frontiersman, who co-founded Fort Nashborough — now Nashville Tennessee. Martin Donelson Jr. was a physician and flight surgeon, well known within Danville’s pilot community. Martin Donelson III was a local attorney, first opening offices here in 1976.

This property is located in the Old West End National Historic District. One of five National Register districts in Danville, Virginia, the OWE boasts the finest and most concentrated collection of Victorian and Edwardian architecture anywhere in the Commonwealth. But it’s not just the architecture. Located adjacent to our city’s flourishing downtown River District, the Old West End is a community of friendly people with a passion for preservation and restoration.
