A small town established in the late 1700's, it used to be named Middlesex Parish after the Church, today called First Congregational. During the Revolution, Tories raided the town
several times, once taking 27 hostages including the minister. Later, Middlesex Parish was renamed Darien after Darien, Panama. Some famous residents include the drummer
from Kiss, the general Manager
of the Yankees
, and a news anchor from popular
show, 60 minutes. Darien also currently has the largest Little League in the country
and the Darien library
was rated 6 best in the country
. Our little town, the second smallest in CT, is full of history
, and if you take the time
to know us, you will see that we are kind, hard-working people. LIke every other town we have our ups and downs, but judge us fairly, without the prejudice
: Darien sucks, everyone is rich and spoiled
Carter: Have you ever been to Darien and met the people?
Carter: Then you don't have the right to judge us that way.
