Where’s the Whaleboat?
The Whaleboat Middlesex is embarking on its final summer voyage! Be sure to visit this extraordinary piece of Darien's history at Hollow Tree Self Storage — a huge thank you to this business for donating space for the Middlesex to dry dock over the winter — and to all of our "Mates" who got in on the fun!
Darien 1820 — New Town, New Times
What was it like to live in Darien 200 years ago? As the town celebrates its 200th birthday it’s an opportune time to ask the question. A new commemorative book, Darien 1820 — New Town, New Times by Darien Historical Society Historian Ken Reiss, costs $27, and is available at Barrett Bookstore, which recently reopened its store at 6 Corbin Drive.
