Visit the Darien Historical Society and step back in time to learn about colonial America. Or take in one of our exhibits in our soaring post and beam exhibit space.  The Darien Historical Society operates an 18th century saltbox museum, a spacious barn exhibit gallery, a resource library, and a historical herb garden. 

Located in Fairfield County, Connecticut, the town of Darien is just 37 north of New York City. Just under 13 square miles, it is the smallest town along the state's "Gold Coast," and is one of the wealthiest town's in the country. Darien's history has been shaped by its location on the shore of Long Island Sound and along the main route between Boston and New York. Originally part of Stamford, the area of Darien became Middlesex Parish in 1737, and was incorporated as the Town of Darien in 1820.
