Historical Society Seeks Photos of Old Darien

The group is publishing a book chronicling the history of what is now Darien up until its incorporation in 1969.

If you’re anything like me, you made a New Year’s resolution to clear out old boxes and closets to begin 2012 with a fresh start.

As you’re going through your old mementoes, keep an eye out for old photos of places and people in what is now Darien. 

The is writing a book, to be published by Arcadia, chronicling the area’s history up until Darien’s incorporation in 1969.

To help complete the book, the group needs your help finding photos of old buildings, businesses and landmarks. 

“Really anything that would show the growth of the area,” said Debbie Kieras, of the historical society.

Kieras will need to borrow the photos and scan them before returning them to their owners.

Even if you think your photos are only so-so, she said the historical society would still like to see them.
