Darien, New York, USA

In 1803, Orange Carter arrived from Vermont to become the town’s first permanent resident in the southern part of town. Early settlers followed rapidly. Stephen Parker kept the first inn, in 1808, in Darien City. Amos Humphrey started the first saw mill in 1809 on Eleven Mile Creek in Darien. Stephen King opened the first store at Darien Center in 1815, giving the name King’s Corners to the Settlement. Until 1832, the area that is now the Town of Darien was the southern part of the Town of Pembroke and often referred to as South Pembroke. By an Act of the State Legislature, dated February 10, 1832, Darien was established as a separate township.
