This settlement just west of East Port Medway may have been named after an early settler. Frederick Vogler, Matthew Parks, and John Dolliver received a grant of 1150 acres but there was little or no settlement there in the late 19th Century. Farming and lumbering were the mainstay industries.

Danesville is on Highway 103 just after Middlefield.
