About

Our Vision

Whether it’s a 17th century blanket chest owned by a Middlesex family, a hand-sewn flag from the Civil War era, or an early photograph of a Darien school principal, we believe in the power of objects to convey stories and construct larger meanings.

From its earliest, humblest beginnings as Middlesex Parish, we show how a struggling farm community along the Long Island Sound shoreline evolved into the prosperous community we know today.

We tell Darien’s story.
