Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The history of Darien, Connecticut, has been shaped by its location on the shore of Long Island Sound as the main route from Boston to New York City, initially with sailing ships and dirt roads for transportation, and later with locomotives and highways. This aspect of the town continually influenced its development. The Siwanoy, an Agonquian-speaking sachemdom of the Wappinger tribe, originally occupied Darien and the surroundinng area. The Siwanoy controlled what is now much of the Bronx, Westchester County and the Connecticut "panhandle" as far east as Norwalk and part of Wilton.show more
