A small town just east of
Angleton, Texas where everyone is always welcome!
"Little Town, Big Heart" NOTICE: This page is not officially

Danbury is on Spur 28 two miles off State Highway 35 and
five miles northeast of Angleton in Brazoria County. Until
the coming of the Missouri Pacific Railroad in 1905–06 this
area was populated only by a few ranchers and farmers. The
railroad gave access to hundreds of acres of rich farmland
that had previously been almost inaccessible, and several
towns grew up along the route. It is said the railroad
construction workers gave the town its name in honor of D.
J. "Uncle Dan" Moller, an area rancher who often entertained
them at night with music and tall tales. Other sources say
it was named for a Daniel T. Miller. Land promoters bought
up large tracts and advertised in the North and Midwest.
Settlers began to arrive, and a hotel was built to
accommodate them. A demonstration farm garden was planted.
Businesses began to open, including a general store, in
which a post office was established in 1909.
Since most of the newcomers engaged in
truck farming, docks were built on Austin Bayou, two miles
southeast of Danbury, to ship produce by boat to Galveston.
Watermelons, strawberries, cabbages, and onions went by
train to Chicago, New York, and other cities in the north.
When oil was found at nearby Hoskins Mound, it, too, was
shipped by rail from Danbury. By 1916 most of the
northerners had left, discouraged by freezes, floods, and
storms; Czech farmers began to move into the area.
The first school in Danbury was
held in a private home before 1909, when a one-room, frame
school was built. More rooms were added in 1912 and 1917,
and in 1920 the first brick school was constructed. The old
frame building was divided in half and used for many years
by the town's Protestants and Catholics. In 1990 both the
Catholics and the Baptists had substantial buildings in
Danbury, and major school-construction programs had provided
modern facilities for the increasing number of students.
An airfield was located in Danbury
World War I. Planes from
Ellington Field landed there, then flew on to West
Columbia as part of the cross-country flight-training
program. Danbury was incorporated in 1960, with a mayor and
council form of government. In 1990 the chief industries of
the area were rice farming and cattle ranching, both of
which began long before the town sprang up, and declining
oil production; a catfish farm was in operation. Danbury had
a population of 1,447 in 1990 and 1,611 in 2000.
