Matters of the heart will be celebrated during the month of February at the Darien Historical Society with programs and exhibits intended to kindle a flame of passion for local history and town pride.
Discover the town’s patriotic past through the exhibit, “Long May She Wave: The Evolution of the Flag,” which runs through March 13. The “stars” of the exhibit are the antique flags in the Society’s collection and also the history of the town. A mini-exhibit featuring the flag-themed photographs of Darien resident Robert Carley is also on display. The display, open during the Society’s regular hours, is free for members, and also Darien’s first responders, teachers and students. The cost is $5 for non-members.
