Dear Neighbor,

There are some big things happening at the little red house on Old Kings Highway North, and by becoming a member of the Darien Historical Society, you become part of a very important mission. That mission is to tell the story of Darien – its history and its people. We collect and care for the treasures of our past, and tell our story through exhibits, lectures and school programs. When you become a member of the Darien Historical Society, you support and celebrate a cherished legacy – our history. Please join us today.

Robert J. Pascal, Jr. President


We collect Darien’s historical treasures.

Visit our museum on Old Kings Highway North to learn more about Darien’s exciting history.

Explore our 18th century saltbox to experience life in early America. Delve into the past by browsing in our library and archives.

Discover our shared local history through an exhibit in our soaring post and beam barn. Attend a lecture in our library and enjoy our exceptional collections.


We tell Darien’s story. We educate the town’s third and fifth graders with programs throughout the year; maintain world-class wardrobe and quilt collections; hold major exhibits that put local history into a larger context; host talks and programs on topics of interest; train high school students to become docents; are the beneficiary of the Garden Club’s beautiful historical garden; collaborate with other town institutions and maintain a historical research library.
