In 1897, Congress established a soldiers home called the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers in Danville, and the next year the cemetery was established on a small plot of land nearby to inter those veterans who died while under care in the facility. In 1901 a new cemetery was plotted, and the interments were all moved to their current location. It was transferred to the National Cemetery system in 1973.

Danville National Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
