Love and Amelia Harvey Love owned most of the land that is now “West Danville.” Once surrounded by orchards and a bee farm, this is one of the oldest remaining original farmhouses in Danville. Robert was a trustee of the Union Academy, the first high school in the County. Their family land included the 1917 San Ramon Valley Union High School and the 1922 Danville Elementary School.
