The Watts-Bell House circa 1816-1817, was built by William Watts for leading Danville merchant David Bell. Joshua Fry Bell, grandson of David Bell, grew up in this house. He became a distinguished lawyer and statesman, serving as a member of the Kentucky legislature, the United States Congress, and as Secretary of State under Governor Crittenden. In 1839, the Danville Literary and Social Club was formed here and is known today as the Anaconda Club, the oldest club of its type west of the Alleghenies.
