The City of Darien, established in 1736, has a broad collection of historic sites composing a enjoyable walk through the downtown area. You can pick up a printed guide to the self-guided tour at the Chamber of Commerce (107 Fort King George Road) or the Visitor Information Center (1111 Magnolia Bluff Way SW). The Walking Tour leads you by the very first Presbyterian Church in the state of Georgia, numerous tabby ruins and the oldest commercial building in Darien, and the historic waterfront. There are numerous churches and homesĀ built in the 1800s as well as the original town squares layed out by Genral James Oglethorpe. Darien is the second-oldest planned town in Georgia and served as the leading seaport for shipping lumber and cotton prior to the Civil War. Enjoy the sites of Darien - it is well worth the time and steps.
