Darien, Connecticut City Info

Originally part of Stamford, the area we know as Darien became Middlesex Parish in 1737.  It was incorporated as the Town of Darien in 1820.  The first planters, as they were called, took title to the land in 1640, when the New Haven Colony bought from the Indians a tract of wilderness where the Rippowam River met the waters of Long Island Sound.  The Indians in the Stamford area at that time were a generally peaceful tribe of Siwanoys - "the south people" - who lived in small villages of bark-covered wigwams, and who spent their lives fishing, hunting and tending their corn fields.

The eastern boundary of the Rippowam purchase was Pine Brook, or Goodwives River, as it is called today.  Only four years after their arrival, the colonists felt that they would soon need more land for their growing town.  Their original group of 28 families had increased to 59 by the end of 1642.  For four coats and some tobacco a tract between Pine Brook and Five Mile River was bought from Piamikin, the chief of the Roatons.  Roaton, meaning "the creek almost dry at low tide, " included the Tokeneke section of Darien, whose owners in the twentieth century chose the name of a Norwalk chieftain for their real estate development.

In 1864 during the Civil War, the first home for disabled war veterans and soldiers' orphans in the United States was built at Noroton Heights, named after its founder, Benjamin Fitch of Darien.  At the end of the Civil War, security and economic prosperity in the North brought a building boom.  What had once been farmland and open space was divided and residences for prosperous businessmen and affluent local merchants blossomed on major streets including Brookside, Prospect, Mansfield, Noroton and Middlesex.  A number of well-to-do New Yorkers discovered Darien's picturesque shoreline and built summer homes in Tokeneke, Long Neck Point and Noroton.  In 1897, the Stamford Street Railway inaugurated trolley service through Darien.  (This service was discontinued in 1933.)  Darien was still a small town of a few thousand people in 1914, even though there were already a few hardy commuters here who taxied by surrey from home to station.

After World War II, new streets and developed areas sprang up.  The town center grew steadily along with the population.  By the mid-1950's the Connecticut Turnpike came through the town.  General prosperity and growth continued until the population leveled off around 20,000 by 1970.  Today Darien is a suburban community with an active town center, excellent schools, and involved residents.  It offers unspoiled land and clear waters.  Those who have come to live here have been careful stewards of its architectural and natural heritage while enjoying the resources of a modern community.
