Membership: Join Today

The Darien Historical Society is the town’s only organization dedicated to preserving the unique story of our town – the unique story of us. 

It is in our museum alone, that the records of how Darien's individual character and sense of self have been defined are kept, and it is the Society's responsibility to preserve as well as share the story of Darien's character, distinction and community awareness so that these qualities will continue with future generations.

Historical awareness, combined with pride in our town, is the engine that drives Darien toward the future. Your financial support of The Darien Historical Society and your active participation in our many events is of vital importance to keep that engine moving. Come join us! Support your town . . . keep Darien Darien. We couldn't exist without you. Please become a member today and discover and help us protect our heritage! Your membership contribution helps us present award-winning exhibitions and educational programming, protect our collection, and maintain our landmark house, barn and gardens.

  • Free admission
  • Invitations to members-only exhibition previews and behind-the-scenes tours
