The land that comprises Danbury was first settled in 1771, though it was a part of the nearby town of Alexandria at the time. In 1795, the area was separated and incorporated as its own town, taking its name from the Connecticut town of the same moniker. In its early years, Danbury was primarily a farming town, but as population grew, the town saw the up crop of many successful mills, including seven sawmills, two shingle mills, two clapboard mills and more. In 1874, the town was transferred from Grafton County to Merrimack County, where it still sits today.
