If you've ever walked around downtown Dansville and thought to yourself, "Who lives behind those tiny doors?" We've got the answer!

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 31 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 (fairy door trail maps are available at all fairy door host locations) to seek out the locations of all the doors, and stop by Dogwood Trading Company or Dansville Public Library to receive a surprise! These little doors will be sure to delight children of all ages.
